My research interests are the taxonomy and ecology of Collembola, a group of common and abundant arthropods closely associated with soil and decomposition processes. I have worked on the group not only in all climatic zones in Australia but also in Antarctica, Indonesia, Burma, South Africa and the Solomon Islands among other places. At present, I am using these organisms to assess the success of rehabilitation processes in several Australian states.
