Dr Lindsay Hutley

PhD, BSc(Hons), Associate Diploma in Applied Biology

Lecturer, Environmental Science

Research interests

  • I have research interests in tropical savannas and how vegetation has adapted to the physical environment imposed by a wet-dry tropical climate as experienced in northern Australia.
  • I work on carbon and water cycling in tropical and temperate Eucalypt dominated ecosystems and in particular the impact of fire, grazing and weed invasion on these processes.
  • Work on carbon dynamics and fire is incorporated into climate models that attempt to describe feedbacks between landscape process and climate change.
