Dr Steven Leonard Academic, Ecology, Environment & Evolution

My main research interest is the ecology of disturbance. Disturbances such as fire and herbivory are known to be shapers of ecosystem composition and function, but disturbances may also interact with each other in unexpected ways. In addition vegetation and fauna may not only be influenced by but also influence disturbance regimes. Unraveling these complex relationships is an intriguing area in which to work and crucial to the conservation management of many ecosystems.
