Project 1.4 Restoration at NRM Regional scale

Researchers: Prof Hugh Possingham, UQ & Dr Tara Martin, CSIRO (Joint Leaders), Josie Carwardine, Clive McAlpine, Hugh Possingham, Leonie Seabrook, Luke Shoo, Kerrie Wilson, Nathalie Butt
Project to deliver multi-objective (water, biodiversity and carbon) plans for restoration at the scale of NRM regions and whole of Australia.  Includes priorities for stewardship.

Dr Nathalie Butt

My research focuses on the interaction of climate/climate change and biodiversity, previously mainly applied to forest ecosystems. Currently I am combining species distribution modelling and ecosystem vulnerability for tree species and communities in Australian vegetation groups to predict which treed ecosystems may be most threatened by climate change, and where conservation efforts should focus.

Specific research areas I am working on with Hub Researchers Prof Hugh Possingham and Assoc Prof Clive McAlpine are:

Potential changes in Eucalyptus species' climate space under future climate, related to Projects 1.4 & Read More...

Dr Josie Carwardine

Web page

Josie is a joint post-doctoral fellow with the Conservation Decisions Lab at CSIRO Ecosystem Sciences and the NERP Environmental Decisions Hub at the University of Queensland Node. Her research focuses on conservation planning and decision making for biodiversity conservation under a changing climate and a carbon economy. She endeavours to draw together key ecological and socio-economic information to support better decision outcomes for biodiversity and people.
Josie's current projects include both national and state-wide analyses of priority areas for restoration to achieve carbon and biodiversity benefits, which relates to NERP Project 5.6. Further, she is building upon her pioneering work on prioritising threat management for biodiversity conservation in the Kimberley, to undertake regional scale analyses o ...

Dr Kerrie Wilson

Web page

Kerrie Wilson is an Australian Research Council Future Fellow (and UQ Node Leader for CEED and The NERP Environmental Decisions Hub). Kerrie is interested in applied conservation resource allocation problems, such as where to invest limited resources to protect biodiversity, to restore habitat, or manage systems. Her research program also focuses on the analysis of uncertainty (with a particular focus on the impact of climate change and other institutional and socio-political factors that influence the likelihood of investment success), landscape dynamics (e.g. the evaluation of land use scenarios and threatening processes), and biodiversity benefit (e.g. how to maximise biodiversity outcomes in restoration and ways to account for multiple benefits such a ...
