Lynda Prior presents ‘A tale of two species: Allosyncarpia ternata and Callitris intratropica in Kakadu National Park’ on Friday 13 April from 1pm to 2pm.
A 16-year study of growth and survival of Top End tree species, Allosyncarpia ternata and Callitris intratropica was recently completed. In this seminar, Lynda will discuss the results in relation to previous physiological, ecological and landscape studies of these species to predict the likely future of these two colourful Territorians.
Dr Lynda Prior worked on salinity and irrigation research for 13 years before moving to Darwin to do her PhD on ecophysiology of savanna trees. For the last four years she has been investigating tree growth and landscape change in Kakadu National Park with the School for Environmental Research at Charles Darwin University.
