Mighty macrophytes: Ecology & management of common reed & bulrush

Common reed (Phragmites australis) and bulrush (Typha domingensis) inhabit freshwater and brackish ecosystems across southern Australia.

While native, their abundance has increased greatly encroaching into the habitat of other species.

We invite honours students to work with us on research into the drivers and the consequences of their expansion to help improve management strategies.
