Alison O'Donnell

Senior Research Scientist, CSIRO

I have a broad research interest in biogeography and landscape ecology in relation to climate variability and fire regimes. I am particularly interested in utilising remote sensing, field survey and dendrochronology (tree ring) techniques to understand past climates and fire regimes of arid and semi-arid regions in Western Australia.
