Our research group conducts world-leading basic and applied research of high quality to develop new ecosystem management approaches and methods.

In co-operation with industry and government, we pursue cost-effective solutions for rehabilitating disturbed lands and disposing of wastes for the benefit of both business and the community.

Our research focuses on three main areas:

Post-mining land rehabilitation

  • Restoration of pasture land post-mining
  • effects of fertilisers on post-mining ecosystems development
  • metallophyte research

Ecosystems management

  • Spatial and temporal assessment of CO2 evolution from soils on Barrow Island
  • environmental risk assessment of acid sulphate soil formation and contaminant generation in Swan Coastal Plain
  • optimising biodegradation and removal of organic and inorganic pollutants in wastewater using constructed wetlands
  • effects of fertilisers on post-mining ecosystems development
  • metallophyte research

Agriculture

  • Improved nitrogen use efficiency in wheat and barley
  • role of tolerance to ion toxicities in crop adaptation to waterlogged soils
  • role of organic matter and soil biota in optimising crop nutrition in sustainable farming systems.
