About the author
I am a plant ecologist with an interest in managing land as well as writing about it.
I have worked in a range of ecosystems in eastern Australia, but mostly in eucalypt grassy woodlands with the University of New England and CSIRO. I grew up amongst them, researched them for over 20 years at and have now settled on a patch near Gundaroo NSW. Jon and I live at Gang Gang a small property on the slopes of the Yass River Valley.
I contribute monthly to our local newsletter the Gundaroo Gazette, and write about landscapes and the plants and animals that live in them, including the humans. As the Gundaroo Gazette has a modest circulation, I am making the articles accessible though this website.
I have been a research partner in a major woodland restoration experiment located in the north of the ACT. The Mulligans Flat – Goorooyarroo Woodland Experiment involves a number of restoration treatments as well as introductions of regionally extinct fauna such as the Eastern Bettong, the Eastern Quoll and the Bush Stone-curlew.
