Dr Alison Hewitt

I have a PhD in botany and plant ecology. My research on reproductive biology and ecology of the Melaleuca genus have demonstrated genetic and environmental factors critical to species survival. I have studied Australian native plant responses to shade and temperature as well as disturbance effects on vegetation in Western Sydney and the Blue Mountains. I'm also interested in plant-animal interactions, Eucalyptus, threatened species and flora survey methodology.
