Understanding how leaves develop

Plants utilize "boundaries" of genes expression to help decide where to position and how to shape leaves. This project will investigate how these boundaries control plant developmen more...

Can encrusting seaweeds defend themselves? A new direction in marine ecology

Many plants in the terrestrial biomes can turn defences against herbivory on and off in response to specific cues from consumers or nearby herbivory events. This can modify the beha more...

Scaling hydrological models from continent to catchment

A major question in hydrology revolves around scaling, that is, how we translate model results from for example a continental scale to a finer catchment or local scale. This is part more...

Do hydrological models cope with complex Australian catchments?

Climate change and rapid land use change has forced a rethink on hydrological models. Non-stationarity (where trends in time-series are non-linear or non-uniform) is now the norm, a more...
