Aidan.Davison@utas.edu.au

Aidan Davison is an Associate Professor in human geography and environmental studies. Aidan is fascinated and troubled by contested concepts of 'nature', 'development', ‘technology’ and 'sustainability'. In his nationally awarded teaching and interdisciplinary research, he seeks to inquire into environmental sustainability and social justice as a unified goal. He has published two books and over seventy articles and chapters, and supervised to completion over 50 PhD, Masters and Honours students. His research encompasses theoretical, quantitative and qualitative inquiry on diverse topics including the urban forest, suburban history, environmentalism, climate change attitudes, the Anthropocene, practical reasoning and education for sustainability.

Biography

Aidan completed his Doctoral studies at the Institute for Sustainability and Technology Policy at Murdoch University (Western Australia) during the 1990s, before becoming Program Chair of an interdisciplinary degree in Sustainable Development at that University. He returned to the University of Tasmania in 2003 as an Australian Postdoctoral Fellow, having done his undergraduate studies in biochemistry there in the 1980s. He has held a teaching and research position at the University of Tasmania since 2007.

Australia's Changing Urban Tree Estate: A Socio-ecological Study of Patterns, Causes and Consequences (2009 - 2011)$130,000
Description
Urban trees are a vital element of the sustainability and liveability of cities. Anecdotal evidence suggests recent changes in the Australian urban tree estate. These changes are not well documented, nor are their causes and consequences well understood. Using a novel socio-ecological methodology, data from remote sensing, size class analysis, social surveying, focus groups and interviews will be integrated to understand the patterns and causes of tree retention, establishment and removal. On this basis, predictive models will be developed to aid in planning the optimisation of the urban tree estate.
