Dr Nick Williams is a plant ecologist at the University of Melbourne. Nick’s research investigates the ecology of urban areas in particular, grassland ecology and restoration, green infrastructure for climate change adaptation and weed invasions. Nick’s research has highlighted how surrounding landscapes influence the processes that occur in remnant habitats, such as edge effects and local extinctions, and, has developed ways to make urban areas more biodiversity friendly.

Discovering and appreciating the hidden seasonal beauty of native grasslands is appealing to me, as is understanding their ecology, really finding out the hidden interactions between the plants, the animals and the environment stimulates me.
