Dr Nathan Emery

Scientific Officer

Research Interests

I have interests in plant ecology and seed biology. Specifically, I am interested in how individuals vary at a population level, as well as how the external environment limits the distribution of species.

I also have a keen interest in cicada ecology in eastern Australia, in particular the species distribution patterns and how they are related to environment.

I am also interested in the use of technology and GIS for ecological purposes.
