Assoc Prof Rod Fensham

The University of Queensland, Department of Science, Information Technology and Innovation

Rod Fensham is trying to build an understanding of the ecological issues required to manage and conserve the natural environment of the north-eastern quarter of the Australian continent. The big natural playground of Queensland represents ecosystems from tropical rainforest to arid shrublands and he suspects he has the best job in the world! In 2016 he will working on the ecology and hydrogeology of springs, drought-induced tree dieback and the ecology of rare plants species amongst other things. He has far more ideas than capacity to fulfil them, so welcomes collaborators and committed post-graduate students to discuss potential projects.
