Dr John Morgan's picture

Dr John Morgan is a research scientist in the Department of Botany at La Trobe University, Bundoora. John has worked for many years in the grassy ecosystems of southern Australia, concentrating on understanding the long-term changes that occur in species composition in the context of land-use change, ecological management and plant invasions, relating his findings to conservation and biodiversity.

I’m most interested in a field called species coexistence – what are the factors, such as fire, water and herbivores, that affect the number of native species to survive in grasslands, and what are the factors that allow exotic species to move into native grasslands.
