Professor Barry Fox

Visiting Fellow
Body

I retired from teaching at UNSW in mid 2001 and now live in Newcastle , but, I remain actively interested in research as a Visiting Professor. I am continuing to write up the results of research projects with colleagues and particularly with previous research students who now have teaching and research positions at other universities.  The main focus of this research has been on trying to improve our understanding of habitat use and experimental manipulations of habitat to illuminate the mechanisms involved.

My research has been conducted from two main locations: the School of Biological Science's Smiths Lake Field Station and the Hunter Water Corporation's catchment at Tomago Sandbeds, and encompasses the following topics.

Disturbance Ecology:

  • studies of rehabilitation on areas following sand mining for heavy minerals, and also the effects of fluoride fallout from aluminium smelters;
  • studies of habitat fragmentation and edge effects in forest and heath habitats, particularly those subject to disturbance events above.

Fire Ecology:

  • the effects of wildfire and intentional burning on plant and animal communities, particularly with respect to the frequency component of the fire regime.

Community Ecology:

  • a wide range of topics: competition, habitat selection, species packing and succession.

Assembly Rules:

  • development of assembly rules for species occupying 'favoured states', following the initial studies of Jared Diamond. Refining models for desert rodent communities published with Jim Brown and Doug Kelt.
