Established: 1983.

Aim: Quantify the inter-relationships between human and natural disturbances and changes in vegetation condition and biodiversity response.

Key research questions:

  1. How does natural disturbance and/or man-agement intervention alter vegetation condition, and, in turn, the response of biodiversity?
  2. What is the relationship between vegetation and carbon biomass?
