PhD project: Ecological consequences of anthropogenic driven shifts in fire seasonality.

Tom is a PhD candidate at the University of NSW studying how fire seasonality is changing at global and local scales and the consequences for plant ecology. The project is particularly focused on the ecological context for changing fire seasonality across different ecoregions, exploring the mechanisms through which these changes may affect plant populations and understanding what this means for species persistence. Prior to undertaking this PhD Tom work as a Senior Scientist at the Department of Primary Industry and Environment conducting threatened species risk assessments on plants around NSW.
