Research in the School of Ecosystem and Forest Sciences covers an exciting mix of fundamental research that investigates how organisms and ecosystems function, more applied research that investigates ecosystems with practical and management outcomes in mind, and environmental social research that investigates the human element of ecosystems. Our research portfolio also includes a number of large research programs that we conduct in partnership with local government, industry or federal agencies. Our activities are supported by state-of-the-art facilities and research infrastructure.
Our research groups are organised under three main research themes that cover fundamental, applied and social aspects of ecosystem and forest sciences
Our scientists lead a number of collaborative research programs that investigate major societal issues of ecosystem and forest sciences in partnership with local government, industry and federal agencies.
Research Infrastructure and Facilities
Our research is supported by excellent research infrastructure and facilities, on campus or in the field. Some of our facilities are directly linked with national and international research initiatives and accessible to the wider scientific community.
