Dr Dorothy Steane is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Biological Sciences. Her current research program focuses on population genetics, phylogeny, evolution, adaptation and biogeography of Eucalyptus.  Dorothy also participates in numerous collaborative research projects that address taxonomic or evolutionary questions in other plant groups including Casuarinaceae, Clerodendrum (Lamiaceae), Dracophyllum (Ericaceae), Correa (Rutaceae) and Pterostylis (Orchidaceae).

Biography

Although physically based at the University of Tasmania, Dorothy has held research positions with many partner organisations: three forestry-related Cooperative Research Centres, an NCCARF funded project in collaboration with CSIRO and National Parks and Wildlife (WA), and a Senior Research Fellowship with the University of the Sunshine Coast.

Research Themes

Dorothy's research into genetic adaptation, phylogeny and evolution aligns with the University's research theme of Environment, Resources and Sustainability. Information derived from genomic approaches to phylogeny are being used in conjunction with morphological data to improve the classification of Australia's iconic eucalypts. Adaptation research provides data that underpin practical strategies to assist environmental managers to future-proof ecological restoration projects.

Collaboration

Dorothy is currently involved in a collaborative project on adaptation to aridity in eucalypts with National Parks and Wildlife (WA), CSIRO Land and Water flagship (WA) and Edith Cowen University (WA); this research also links into the Australian Transect Network.  In 2012-2014, Dorothy collaborated with researchers at the University of the Sunshine Coast and Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (QLD) on projects relating to the genomic adaptation of Corymbia to aridity.  Through her membership of EUCAGEN, she was involved with the international effort to sequence the complete genome of Eucalyptus grandis. She was a key player in the ARC Environmental Futures Network (2006-2008) and is involved with the Australian Transect Network.

Projects

Genome-wide scans of native Eucalyptus pauciflora (2017)$15,000
Description
We will use DArTseq markers to genotype ca. 280 samples of E. pauciflora from 37 populations from across the native range inTasmania. The resulting database will build on existing SSR, cpDNA and functional trait databases that will be combined to conduct studies on the genetic basis of adaptation to climate. Such studies will feed into seed sourcing guidelines for ecological restoration.

Description
The USC Research Futures Project is an integrated package of initiatives that will drive increased quantity and quality in USCs research effort. It has two key elements:1. Realising collaboration with strategic research partners.2. Increasing USCs internal research collaboration capacity.The research partners were strategically selected for their leadership in research areasaligned with USCs strengths (water, sustainability, forests, aquaculture), researchdevelopment strategies and their track record for successful collaboration. These partnersare: Griffith University, including the University of Queensland via the Australian Waterand Environmental Research Alliance. University of Tasmania. Queensland University of Technology.

Modelling Genomic Adaptation in Eucalypts (2012)$20,000
Description
Recent advances in genetic technology in eucalypts provide a unique opportunity to lead critical international research in population-level adaptation to climate change. Widespread species that span aridity gradients may provide the genetic potential required to maximise survival of commercial and restoration plantings. We will use genome scans to identify adaptive markets in populations of a Queensland eucalypt species, Corymbia variegata, across an aridity gradient. This twelve month project will provide tools for monitoring adaptive changes in Australia's forests and inform environmental planning into the future.
