Lynda spent 13 years in Mildura, researching irrigation requirements of and effects of salinity on citrus and grapevines, before moving to Darwin to do a PhD. There she investigated the seasonal changes in photosynthesis and water relations of savanna trees. She became intrigued by the co-existence of evergreen and dry-season deciduous trees in northern Australia, which led to a study of leaf attributes in a wide range of tree species in contrasting habitats in the seasonal tropics. Then followed investigations of tree growth, recruitment and mortality in relation to fire and inter-tree competition, making use of several long term datasets. She is currently responsible for the field program for the Callitris project, visiting sites throughout the Australian mainland. Lynda escaped the tropical heat by moving to Hobart in September 2009.
