Boris Laffineur is an ecologist interested in deciphering issues that will improve the protection and conservation of natural environments. His work has
focused on monitoring the springs of the Great Artesian Basin, documenting drought-induced tree dieback, improving vegetation mapping, and surveying
and understanding threatened plants. Resolving the mysteries raised by observing the dynamics of ecosystems in remote parts of Western Queensland has
kept him entertained for the past five years. Boris believes conservation to be each and everyone’s responsibility and best interest.
