Functional traits in eucalypt distributions of SE and SW Australia

Associate Professor Peter Vesk
University of Melbourne

To provide insight into which eucalypts occur where, this project examined trait-environment relationships in south east Australia and south west Western Australia. The researchers tested the generality and transferability of models of eucalypt distribution using trait-based  multispecies Generalised Linear Mixed Models.

500 herbarium vouchers have been added to the MELU herbarium and  Atlas of Living Australia and a substantial new trait database for SE Australian eucalypts has resulted providing a foundation for further analysis.
