Agricultural and native vegetation systems in the Wheatbelt
Research team leader: Professor Jason Beringer
I lead research to determine how the Australian terrestrial biosphere will respond to climate and land use change. The focus is on the major ecosystem cycles and ecological structure for understanding ecosystem services and the impacts of people and climate. I have provided an important foundation and tools for addressing questions about the potential future impacts of change and provide options for sustainable landscape management.
