Kay Morris is an aquatic ecologist with over 20 years’ experience. Kay’s research examines responses of wetland plants to threats including nutrient enrichment, salinisation and altered water regimes. She has also studied how aquatic habitats are linked across the landscape through the dispersal of plants and animals and has developed models of biological connectivity to inform management decisions. Her current research aims to understand the effectiveness of management actions, such as controlled grazing, revegetation, weed control and environmental flows, in improving vegetation condition.
