The Forest Ecology and Silviculture research group focuses on understanding how native forests develop, how they change over time, how they respond to disturbances and climate, and how this knowledge can inform better forest management.

We work across multiple fields—from silviculture to temperate and tropical forest ecology to palaeoclimatology—and in a wide range of forest ecosystems—from eucalypt woodlands, tall moist forests, cool temperate rainforests and urban forests in Australia to tropical forests in Southeast Asia. Our research combines a deep understanding of the natural history of the forests with rigorous quantitative analyses and modeling to address questions focused on improving our understanding of forests and how they can be better managed for a wide range of values.
