Dr

James Camac

 

I’m a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Centre of Excellence for Biosecurity Risk Analysis (CEBRA). I am also a member of the Research Centre For Applied Alpine Ecology and an Associate Editor for the Australian Journal of Botany.

I use Bayesian methods and maths to examine interesting ecological questions.My current research involves:Evaluating the performance of biosecurity programs, and quantifying our confidence that a pest is indeed absent from a region.Examining how plant wood density influences patterns of mortality, growth and species coexistence.Examining how climate change and fire influence alpine vegetation dynamicsExamining how soil nutrients and precipitation interact to influence grassland production and composition.
