Research Technicicans

Dr Alicia Toon

Postdoctoral Research Fellow

My research is focused on biodiversity, biogeography and systematics of Australian plants, insects and birds. I use molecular tools to investigate how changes in our environment and interactions with other species shapes traits, distributions and diversity of species.

I am currently working on the biogeography, population genetics and species boundaries of Macrozamia cycads. Together with other members of the Walter lab, we are investigating the population dynamics and effects of interactions between Macrozamia and their pollinators
