Welcome to the home of the Lowe lab group

Based at the University of Adelaide, South Australia, members of the Lowe lab group are involved in a range of active research projects that aim to provide solutions to the global biodiversity crisis. Current projects include the development of genetic methods for the tracking of timber in order to curtail the practice of illegally logging timber from protected stands, investigating restoration best-practices to help re-establish resilient plant communities that deliver ecosystem services, as well as a number of landscape genomics-based projects investigating plant population demography and adaptation across the South Australian landscape and beyond.

We also have a blog, Biodiversity Revolution, and you can find us on FaceBook

The lab group is also affiliated with three facilities of the Terrestrial Ecosystem Research Network (TERN) also based within the group and include:

  • Surveillance monitoring of Australia ecosystem condition – Ausplots
  • Understanding climate adaptation in ecosystems using environmental transects through the Australian Transects Network
  • Warehousing, accessing and analysing ecological and ecosystem data through the ecoinformatics facility and their Advanced Ecological Knowledge and Observation System (AEKOS)
