Friends and collaborators. We have close ties with other research groups at Macquarie, particularly the Plant Invasion and Restoration Ecology Lab (Leishman lab), and the Comparative Ecology Group (Westoby lab). Collaborators elsewhere include folks from Systems Ecology group at Vrije U. (Amsterdam), the Forest Ecology Reich lab (U. Minnesota), Big Ecology group (Moles; UNSW),  Zanne lab (U. Washington), Will Cornwell (UNSW), Ülo Niinemets (Estonian U. Life Sci), and many others.

We are enthusiastic supporters of the TRY traits database, and Prometheus wiki (protocols for ecological & environmental plant physiology).
