 Publications


Most of our publications are available here to download. Also check the individual pages of our researchers and the research theme pages for lists of publications (and pdfs) of papers relevent to specific areas of research.

PDfs can also be found on the UQ list of publications, eprints, which you can search by author or keyword. Also check Hugh Possingham's papers listed on eprints.

Laslty, Dr Simon Linke has created a Journal Blog page where you can post a 1-2 sentence review and link to any paper you find interesting.

Feel free to post anything you find and you think a general 'spatial ecology/conservation' audience will be interested in.
