David Stanton – Principal Landscape Ecologist (BSc Hons Class 1)
With a professional career spanning 22 years, including 3 years working as regional exploration geologist in the Louisade Archipelago of PNG, David has extensive experience in the disciplines of resource mapping, floristic assessment, conservation planning and impact and ecological risk assessment. He has worked across a range of industry sectors including mining, infrastructure and as a consultant to government and indigenous organisations throughout Queensland, the Northern Territory, north-Western Australia and Papua New Guinea. His particular expertise lies in tropical forest ecology including floristic and structural classification, specialising in the mapping of these features. During a consultancy period to the Wet Tropics Management Authority spanning 14 years, in accompaniment with Peter Stanton, David’s comprehensive mapping of flora associations within the world heritage area greatly increased the understanding of ecological function in one of the world’s most botanically diverse regions. The culmination of this work, a series of 38 1:50 000 scale vegetation community maps and descriptive reports form the basis for regional ecosystem classification in Queensland’s Wet Tropical Bioregion and have been used extensively by land managers and scientific organisations for conservation management purposes. Furthermore, David has published vegetation mapping for the Torres Strait Island’s in the far north of Australia on behalf of the Australian Government and has worked extensively on the management of terrestrial biodiversity in northern Australia, co-authoring a number of technical papers on issues relating to landscape scale fire management.
