Erin awarded Australian Flora Foundation grant

Big news this week with Erin being awarded an Australian Flora Foundation grant for her PhD work. This grant, worth $19,272, will allow Erin to collect vital field and laboratory data focused on disentangling the genetic and environmental drivers of Eucalyptus viminalis manna quality and then explore its consequences for native ecosystem function. This grant caps off a wonderful month for Erin who was also awarded the Professor Allan Keast Research Award from Birdlife Australia to link her understanding of what drives variation in manna quality with its impact of the behaviour and reproductive success of one of Tasmania’s most iconic bird species, the Forty Spotted Pardalote. Well done Erin!
