Adaptive environmental management, including aspects of social learning, participatory natural resource management, evaluation and institutional processes and governance. Water management is a current focus, but also native vegetation and soils. Catherine Allan
Dr Rosemary Black has research interests in human dimensions of natural resource management, sustainable tourism, environmental communication, tour guiding, sustainability, outdoor and environmental education and gender issues in natural resource management. Rosemary Black
Spatial Science, particularly remote sensing and GIS for understanding and improving environmental and agricultural systems. Remy Dehaan
Climatology, vegetation remote sensing image analysis, applications of GIS techniques and geocomputation, climate variability and landscape phenology, habitat occupancy modelling Andrew Hall
Using GIS, spatial modelling and data visualization to unveil patterns in environmental and health data.
Exploring the potential of remote and proximal sensing data to increase accuracy in spatial modelling.
Ana Horta
Ecology of fish and rivers: contemporary and historical Paul Humphries
Ecosystem services (particularly contribution of native ecosystems/organisms to service provision), fauna conservation in human-dominated landscapes (particularly urban and agricultural landscapes and studies conducted from interdisciplinary perspectives) Gary Luck
Fire ecology; ecology of semi-arid ecosystems; landscape ecology; effects of predators on ecosystems; herpetology; impacts of climatic extremes on communities; ecological resistance and resilience Dale Nimmo
