Christopher R. Dickman


I have long been fascinated by patterns in biological diversity and the factors that affect it. My current work focuses on mammals and other biota in arid environments and on a range of other projects in applied conservation and management. I gained a PhD from the Australian National University in 1984 and am currently a Professor in Ecology at the University of Sydney and an ARC Discovery Outstanding Research Fellow. I have been privileged to supervise many postgraduate students over the last 25 years, including 42 Honours, 37 Masters and 54 PhD students. I have written or edited 20 books and monographs and authored more than 350 journal articles and book chapters, and have been the recipient of several national and international awards, including NSW Plant and Animal Scientist of the Year in 2010.
