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.

For a research scientist, there are many. There’s very good ecological theory that predicts what should happen in grasslands – so I get to test those ideas and use the outcomes to make management recommendations.
