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.

Having my research into the local extinction of grassland plants and the loss of grassland patches used as evidence in the listing of native grasslands as critically endangered under the Commonwealth Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act.
