Tasmania's vegetation provides many opportunities to study patterns and ecological processes. One area of interest is the impact of climate change (CO2 increase) on the vegetation, and this work makes use of a field-based Free Air CO2 Enrichment (FACE) facility: University of Tasmania Climate Change Facility . Other studies focus on the fossil record of the last 65 million years and biogeographic patterns in the extant vascular and cryptogam flora.
Research in this area is further broken up into the sub-groups below:
