Adjunct Senior Lecturer, Plant Biology/Research Scientist, Kings Park and Botanic Gardens

David manages the seed science programs at Kings Park and Botanic Garden. These programs are broadly focussed on improving the use of native seeds in conservation and restoration. His research interests are centred on seed banking, seed dormancy and germination, and seed ecology. David is particularly interested in the integration of these sub-disciplines of seed science and how these research areas inform seed banking for conservation and restoration.
