Chemical ecology

Supervisor contact

In collaboration with biologists at the ANU we are exploring the chemistry involved with the sexually deceptive orchids (e.g.Chiloglottis, Drakaea, Caladenia)  and their unwitting, but willing, wasp pollinators (e.g. Neozeleboria, Zaspilothynnus). These studies will allow the lifecycle of endangered orchids to be better understood and aid in conservation efforts.
