Free SER seminar 


David Bowman presents 'The ecological logic of Indigenous landscape burning', on Thursday 22 June from 1pm.

David Bowman is a Professor of the Wildlife and Landscape Science at the School for Environmental Research, Charles Darwin University, and an adjunct professor at the Centre for Resource and Environmental Studies, Australian National University and the School of Forest and Ecosystem Science, University of Melbourne.

In collaboration with numerous colleagues he uses a range of tools, including remote sensing and geographic information analysis, stable isotopes, ecophysiological analysis, mathematical modelling, biological survey and molecular analysis to understand how Australian landscapes have evolved in response to climatic change, varying fire regimes, the introduction of large vertebrate herbivores and the impacts of contemporary and prehistoric management.

Later this year David will take up a research chair in Forest Ecology in the School for Plant Science, University of Tasmania, Hobart.

This seminar takes place in main seminar room, Building 22 (22.01), Casuarina Campus.
