Researchers Prof RJ Hobbs
Brief description The research will tackle fundamental issues relating to how we manage and restore ecosystems in Australia (and worldwide) in the face of rapid environmental change, an issue recognised as being of increasingly pressing importance. It will provide a better understanding of ecosystem dynamics in the face of future environmental changes, and develop an approach that considers different forms of management intervention, how these might be triggered and what the ecological and social consequences might be. This will contribute both to the theoretical and conceptual development of ecology, restoration ecology and conservation biology and to policy and management in Australia and elsewhere.
