Rosanne Quinnell is a senior lecturer in the School of Biological Sciences, University of Sydney. The Campus Flora project has taken more of my time than she would ever care to admit. 🙂 The University of Sydney Campus Flora is an exciting initiative in its own right; even more exciting is the enormous potential it presents to transform how we teach Botany across the continent.

Dr Yvonne Davila I am a plant and pollination ecologist interested in plant reproductive ecology, specifically plant-pollinator interactions of Australian biota. I have previously worked with undergraduate ecology students studying pollination networks in Sydney urban gardens and on university campuses. I am keen to work with students to use the app to further contribute to the understanding of (the often overlooked) plant-pollinator interactions in our immediate surroundings. More about me here.
