Dr Dave Kendal is a senior lecturer in environmental management, in the discipline of geography and spatial sciences within the school of technology, environments and design at the university of tasmania. He is interested in researching and teaching human-plant (and wildlife) relationships in cities and beyond, particularly the drivers and effects of environmental management.

Biography

After a career working as a software engineer for an agricultural equipment manufacturer and then a newspaper systems supplier in Australia, South Africa, the US, Europe and Hong Kong, Dave settled down to a career in horticulture. He completed his PhD in 2012 at the Burnley campus of the University of Melbourne, in the Department of Geography and Resource Management, Melbourne School of Land and Environment. Dave then worked at the Australian Research Centre for Urban Ecology, a division of the Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne. In 2016 he was appointed as a Research Fellow in Urban Greening at the School of Ecosystem and Forest Sciences at the University of Melbourne, funded through the Clean Air and Urban Landscape hub of the National Environmental Science Program.

Expertise

Dave’s research draws on geography, psychology and ecology to better understand the vegetation we live with, why we manage ecosystems the way we do, what the effects of this management are on people and the environment. He collaborates extensively with other researchers, government and industry to answer questions that can help improve the landscapes and ecosystems we live with.

Research Themes

Dave’s research aligns to the University’s research theme of Environment, Resources and Sustainability.Dave’s research draws on geography, psychology and ecology to better understand the vegetation we live with. In particular, why we manage ecosystems the way we do, what the effects of this management are, and what the general public thinks about nature and the way we manage it. He collaborates extensively with other researchers, government and industry to answer questions that can help improve the landscapes and ecosystems we live with.

Dave is actively involved in award winning industry and government projects including:

  • GovHack 2015: First Prize in the International category Best WW1 Hack, for Citizen Culture & Heritage: Lest We Forget
  • Nursery and Garden Industry of Australia Greenlife Infrastructure award for the City of Melbourne Urban Forest Strategy and Precinct Plans, as part of a City of Melbourne led team
  • Australian Institute of Landscape Architecture Victoria Medal for the City of Melbourne Urban Forest Strategy and Precinct Plans, as part of a City of Melbourne led team
  • International Association for Public Participation (IAP2) International (Environment Category) for the City of Melbourne Urban Forest Strategy and Precinct Plans as part of a City of Melbourne led team
  • International Association for Public Participation (IAP2) Australasia (Environment Category) for the City of Melbourne Urban Forest Strategy and Precinct Plans as part of a City of Melbourne led team
  • Govhack2014: Geelong Open for business, open for visits open for living. Winner of the local Geelong award
  • Govhack2014: Best use of data to improve local government community services. Winner of the Victorian award
  • Govhack2014: Spirit of Govhack (Winner: Ballarat local award, Highly commended: National award) for the most consistent display of the true spirit of GovHack

Collaboration

Dave is currently in two ARC linkage projects involving industry partners from local and state government in Victoria, NSW and Qld, and university researchers from the University of Melbourne, Sydney University and the University of Queensland. One project is exploring the relationship between urban trees, wildlife, managers and the general public in Melbourne. Another is exploring the relationship between flying foxes, managers and urban residents along the eastern seaboard. Dave is also collaborating with researchers in the USA, Chile, Germany, Sweden, South Africa and the UK to further understanding of global patterns in urban nature.

Awards

  • Peter Harrison Memorial Prize for the best written paper at the 2011 State of Australian Cities conference (open category)

Projects

Leveraging urban and everyday nature experiences to stimulate increased community engagement on biodiversity (2019)$19,800
Description
I have been asked to participate in a consulting project with the RBGV and a consulting firm, The Nature Of (led by my former PhD Student Dr Gary Veale). The $130,000 project was funded through the Victorian Department of Land, Environment, Water and Plannings (DELWP) Biodiversity 2037 Innovation Fund and will run 1 Jan 2019 to 30 June 2019. I have been asked to lead a literature review component (Feb-March) and design some focus groups with three target audiences for the RBGV - families with children 6-12 yrs; young adults (16-25 yrs); and older Australians (65+) (April-May).

Healthy Future Environments and People (2019 - 2022)$233,172
Description
This grant will allow myself and colleagues to 1) form the Healthy Future Environments and People consortium as a new strategic area of research strength for the University and 2) conduct some original research to formalise and strengthen this collaboration. This diverse group includes ecological and health researchers (across career stages), students, government officials, and social scientists who want to understand and develop environmental solutions for health problems.

Understanding the effects of an inner-city student accommodation community garden project in Hobart: Melville St Community Garden Project @ the Hobart City Apartments (2019)$50,000
Description
The University of Tasmania is beginning a journey to shift the focus of the Hobart campuses from Sandy Bay into the Hobart CBD. One of the first steps on this journey is to improve the public landscape and integration of the Melville Street student accommodation through a community garden.

Microbiomes in Tasmania: questions, collaboration and connection with industry (2018)$7,500
Description
Microbial communities are central to human health and ecosystem functioning and thus are of critical importance for us to understand. Microbiomes are being examined in different disciplines across the University (as they pertain to marine environments, forests, agriculture, human health and food safety) and at various government and private industries. However, there is very little cross-talk amongst research groups. This rapidly emerging field is ripe for exploration in Tasmania if skills can be transferred and institutional siloing can be overcome so researchers in different institutions (e.g. School of Natural Sciences, Menzies, College of Health and Medicine, CSIRO) can become aware of each others work. Fostering this collaboration could lead to more rapid advances and efficient research. With this grant, we will host a workshop with two days of presentations on health (day 1) and ecology (day 2) microbiome research, with a third day to discuss applications, industry interest, collaborations, and outline a working paper for publication.

Research Supervision

Supervising RHD students is one of the most rewarding aspects of working in a university. Having recently relocated to Hobart, I am currently looking for potential students. Former students include Cynnamon Dobbs, now at the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile, Tanja Straka, now at the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research in Berlin, Gary Veale, and Alison Farrar.
