Our research focuses on eucalypts and includes environmental genetics and tree breeding.
We study the genetic structure of eucalypt populations and gene flow between plantations and native forests in order to develop better conservation strategies, understand the sequence of evolution in the genus and the evolutionary processes operating, and determine the genetic basis of interactions between eucalypts and dependent mammals, insects & fungi.
Tree breeding research is undertaken through collaboration with the Southern Tree Breeding Association and other partners.
