Cristina’s masters project examined the likely impact of future climate change on the distribution of threatened mammal species in south west Western Australia. She plans to use her time at UQ to extend this project to consider the management implications of these shifting ranges, and produce a manuscript for submission. This project was linked to an ARC-Linkage with Gondwana Link, jointly held by Dr Kerrie Wilson and Prof. Hugh Possingham.

Lucie's research programme focuses on the effects of data uncertainty and availability on conservation decision-making, as well as the macroecology of invertebrates. Through the use of efficient modelling techniques, Lucie aims to address the effects of data gaps on the understanding of global patterns of threat and provide recommendations for conservation resource allocation.

I am a conservation ecologist dedicated to equal parts outreach and applied research to further large-scale conservation goals in multi-use, human-dominated landscapes. My PhD research focuses on the understudied problem of plant invasion in conservation linkages in agricultural and other human-dominated systems. I am currently seeking a collaborative research position at an organization dedicated to bridging disciplines and producing actionable research conclusions that pay heed to the social and ecological sides of conservation.

The Biogeography and Conservation Biology Group seeks to better understand dynamics in coupled human-natural systems, and how these dynamics affect species and communities – from landscape to global scales. Our research aims at identifying ways to balance human resource use with the conservation of biodiversity, and is strongly motivated by providing solutions to real-world conservation problems. The group develops and applies approaches grounded in spatial ecology, quantitative geography, conservation planning, spatial statistics, econometric modeling, and remote sensing. We work in strong collaboration with researchers and science institutions worldwide, and we are active contributors to science networks such as the Global Land Project and Diversitas.

My main focus is on spatial predictive modelling of plant and animal distributions (see Guisan & Zimmermann 2000 and Guisan & Thuiller 2005 in the "Publications" page of my group). Below the methodological interest itself, my group develop models for various purposes, such as rare species management, assessing the potential impact of climate change on plant and vegetation distribution, and invading species forecasting. Several of these topic are investigated jointly with the "Laboratory for Conservation Biology" of the University of Lausanne to which I am affiliated. The main local study area for model development is the Swiss Prealps of Canton de Vaud, a mountainous landscape (ranging from about 400 to 3200 m). I also work on the entire scale of Switzerland (rare and invading spec ...

My research interests lie in evolutionary community ecology, from micro- to macroevolutionary perspectives. I am exploring evolution in traits that are subject to selection from a variety of community members, either directly or indirectly. I argue that most traits are likely under selection from a plethora of forces, both biotic and abiotic; genetic diversity affects community composition, but the reverse is also true: diverse communities maintain genetic diversity, and the trajectory of trait evolution is often not easily predicted from simple pairwise interactions.

I am a plant ecologist with diverse, primarily conservation-oriented interests. My main research projects include: (a) assessing patterns in the geographic and taxonomic distribution of rare plants in the US and Canada; (b) predicting the effect of habitat fragmentation on distribution shift potentials of trees under global warming scenarios; and (c) monitoring of rare plants performance, including population viability analysis and predictive habitat modeling. I have ongoing long-term monitoring projects on mapped forest plot community dynamics (1986-present) and the population dynamics of the endangered tree, Torreya taxifolia, (1989-present), both in northern Florida. My research over the next several years will focus on: (a) population persistence of rare plants in California urban area ...
