About Associate Professor Tina Bell

Fire is a fundamental component of most Australian terrestrial ecosystems. As a fire ecologist I am interested in the wide range of responses of flora, fauna, soil microorganisms and human communities to fire. This includes how plants regenerate after fire and how they cope with changed conditions, how animals interact with their habitat after it has been modified by fire, how soil microorganisms change their abundance and physiology once soil has been altered by fire and the health impacts of smoke from bushfires and prescribed burning on ecosystems and human populations.
