David Duncan has been working on the ecology of plant communities and the animals they support for around 15 years. He is a Research Fellow in the School of BioSciences at the University of Melbourne.
Working for Government and in Universities, David has worked extensively in design of monitoring and evaluation approaches for conservation programs and interventions. Seeking to design projects of greater relevance and impact, David has added a renewed love of statistical modelling and simulation to his toolbox to compliment a foundation in field studies and survey.
David’s natural professional habitat has become the mallee and semi-arid woodland and forest ecosystems in Victoria; but he has also worked with grassy ecosystems, tropical dry forests, mediterranean forest and alpine meadows in Australia, Ecuador and Spain.
