RBG’s Australian Research Centre for Urban Ecology (ARCUE)
Dr Amy Hahs is the GIS Ecologist at the Australian Research Centre for Urban Ecology, Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne. Her research interests include landscape ecology; gradients of urbanisation; ecosystem services provided by large urban green spaces; and the composition and distribution of plants and animals in urban areas, including plant extinction debts. She is particularly interested in the spatio-temporal component of urbanisation and how these dynamics impact on the ecology of urban areas. She enjoys conducting research that contributes to the development of green, healthy cities and towns, and the conservation of resilient ecological systems in areas where people live and work.
