Now, I am pretty terrible at keeping this up to date. But one thing that I’d like to highlight is my Eucalyptus trait project. This project is serving several aims. One is to test the generality of trait-based multi-species distribution models that were developed for a paper during Laura Pollock’s PhD . Another is to contribute to greater amount of trait measurements, and a third is to get out into the field! Collaborators include Will Morris, Will Neal, Laura Pollock and Karel Mokany. Keep your eyes peeled for work on eucalyptus distributions in SE Australia. This work is being supported by Eucalypt Australia and the Australian Academy of Science.
