Dr Matthew Mitchell

Dr Matthew Mitchell is a Postdoctoral Fellow at UQ researching the topic of 'Achieving Biodiversity Conservation and Ecosystem Service Delivery: the Role of Landscape Structure'.

How does the structure of urban and peri-urban landscapes affect both biodiversity conservation and ecosystem services and how should we manage these landscape for these two components? This gap in our knowledge limits our ability, especially in rapidly changing urban and peri-urban areas, to predict how land use change will affect biodiversity and ecosystem services. Using remotely sensed data, including satellite imagery and LiDAR data, this project will explore how three-dimensional vegetation structure and the broader landscape context interact to influence biodiversity and ecosystem services across the city of Brisbane. This information can then be used to plan for future land use change and adapt to environmental change while maintaining the important ecosystem services present in Brisbane.
