Dr Singarayer Florentine
Restoration ecology and the control of pest plants are two major issues that currently challenge environmental managers. Over recent years, many millions of dollars have funded the restoration and rehabilitation of private land within Australian catchments, though with little, if any, measure of the outcomes. Dr Florentine’s research covers this area, as well as elevated carbon dioxide levels and the response of native and exotic species to this. He conducts research in the field, glasshouse and also in the labs investigating factors affecting restoration of native grassland in ex-cropland.
He is available to supervise HDR students on topics relating to:
- Effect of elevated CO2 on plant species (native or exotic) responses.
- Ecology and management of environmental and Agricultural weeds species.
- Restoration ecology (Arid woodland, grasslands and tropical rainforest).
- Seed ecology.
- A multifaceted investigation of the spread of Acacia species into native habitats.
