A number of native tree species in the Lockyer Valley are experiencing die-back, but the
cause and extent of this problem is currently unknown. In collaboration with the Lockyer
Valley Regional Council, this project will examine vegetation health in a number of
conservation reserves across the Lockyer Valley. The outcomes will be directly fed back into
conservation programs designed to safeguard our unique biodiversity.

Skills involved: field work, data analysis using R, interpretation & scientific writing
