Expert Dr John Morgan
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.

Possibly the best understanding of grasslands will come by undertaking some sort of study – either ecological at University, or more practically based (such as a Certificate of Land Management). Knowledge is an excellent starting point for any endeavour, so the more you can learn about this system (or other systems), the better you’ll be prepared for a career in this type of field.
