This project investigated the 2016 central Tasmanian bushfires that destroyed significant natural and cultural assets within the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area.

This research is structured in three spatio-temporal scales:

  1. the biological impacts of the fires in one endemic subspecies of Eucalyptus
  2. landscape ecology of the fires in one area severely affected area
  3. climate and hydrological contextualisation of the preceding conditions to the 2015/2016 fire season in Tasmania.

This research is providing land managers with new ecological findings in plant recovery after fire and better uses of river data in fire management.

This thesis was submitted in April 2021.
