Local Student Investigates Dune Ecology
The Tennyson Dunes has been home to several researchers in recent years, with SA Museum experts looking at coastal ants, university studies on mychorrhizal fungi, SA Herpetology Group reptile surveys and TAFE SA Urrbrae students monitoring habitat health, just to name a few.
This year another University of Adelaide Honours Student embarks on research into the ecology of insect pollinated plants that have separate male and female individuals, something which is remarkably rare in nature, but seems to be quite pronounced at Tennyson. Her research will have profound implications for how we manage Tennyson in particular and coastal dune rehabilitation more broadly.
We certainly look forward to helping her research and to finding out what she learns.
