Completed PhD projects

PhD students supported by the TS–CRC contribute directly to the Centre's research and the better understanding of Australia's northern landscapes. The CRC helps link graduate students directly with stakeholders and industry personnel, helping ensure a practical research focus into sustainable land-management research.

Our overall research program brings together researchers from its 16 partner agencies spread across Queensland, Western Australia and the Northern Territory. Graduate students benefit from our whole-of-savannas view of land-management and links to researchers from different sectors.

PhD projects cover a wide range of disciplines and interests, and to read about the projects, just scroll through the navigation bar at left.
