With the world’s population predicted to reach 9.6 billion by 2050, seafood demand is set to skyrocket. Yet, according to the United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization, almost 90% of fish stocks […]

Seminar: The hidden past of Tasmanian landscapes

The quantification of the effects of fire and climate change on terrestrial ecosystem depends on our ability to reconstruct past landscape changes. The semi-quantitative nature of Australian palynology has allowed objective inferences of landscape change from pollen data, yet we remain uninformed about the actual degree of alteration of past land-cover due to biases in […]
