I have developed and led the Land-Ecosystem-Atmosphere Processes and Interactions (LEAPI) group which is a skilled multidisciplinary research team undertaking a research program to determine how the Australian terrestrial biosphere will respond to climate and land use change. The focus is on the major ecosystem cycles (water, carbon, and nitrogen), biotic composition and ecological community structure for understanding changes in the provision of ecosystem services and the impacts of people and a changing climate.
I have provided an important foundation and tools for addressing policy-relevant questions posed by the potential future impacts of change and provide options for sustainable landscape management.
