Personal profile

Biography

Bruce leads the CSIRO Ecosystem Change Ecology Team based in Perth, Western Australia, is the Program Director of Ecosystem Processes and Threat Mitigation at the Western Australian Biodiversity Science Institute (WABSI) and is an Adjunct Associate Professor at the University of Western Australia.

Bruce’s work focuses on the impacts of global environmental change on community ecology and the role of plant-ecosystem interactions in shaping community composition.  He leads projects that translate novel research findings into improved management solutions to address the biggest challenges at the nexus of landscape change, species invasions and native species resilience. A common theme underpinning his current research is how plant fitness is influenced by abiotic, biotic and dispersal drivers, and how this fitness, in turn, impacts on population and community dynamics.  Bruce’s research spans a variety of ecosystems, with a particular focus on the tropical regions of northern Australia and SE Asia. He complements this field-based research with controlled-condition experiments and modelling.
