General Meeting

27th October 2022


Guest Speaker: Dr Russell Sinclair,

Visiting Research Fellow, University of Adelaide


"Koonamore Vegetation Reserve"


Russell Sinclair conducted fieldwork for his PhD project (1964-67) at Koonamore and used the facilities for student field camps as part of the Ecophysiology course. He lectured in general biology and plant ecophysiology at the University of Adelaide between 1969 and 2001. In 1972, he took over management of the Reserve and has continued in this role since his retirement as a Visiting Research Fellow of the University now in collaboration with A/Prof José M Facelli.

Koonamore Vegetation Reserve is a site in the arid lands of South Australia which was closed to stock grazing in 1925 and regularly monitored since. This is one of the oldest Long Term Ecological studies in the world.

Unley Community Centre
