Full DescriptionAlaric has been working as a biologist in the Northern Territory since 1990. He has broad interests in the flora and fauna of northern Australia and initially was involved in biological surveys in a diversity of areas and ecosystems. Now, he is mostly interested in how country should be managed in order to protect biodiversity values, and the ecological research that is necessary to inform good management. Most of his recent work has been in pastoral lands and examined the impacts of grazing on wildlife. He is currently completing his PhD at CDU, which has examined the biodiversity of the Mitchell grasslands in northern Australia. These tussock grasslands are one of the most productive of the northern rangelands and almost entirely given over to cattle grazing. His project examined the effects of pastoral use on the wildlife of this environment, and investigated ways that land management could be adjusted to improve the conservation status of species affected by pastoralism. This work also contributed to the Biograze project, a collaborative effort between CSIRO, PWCNT and SE DEH, concerning regional conservation planning in Australian rangelands.
