Rosanne Quinnell is an Associate Professor in the School of Life and Environmental 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.

Caroline Cheung: Summer Scholar (2015) on project “Botany Explorer”. Caroline and Glenda have submitted the USyd Climate Watch trail. Caroline set up the iNaturalist “Campus Flora” project; Caroline and Grant have been using iNaturalist to log their observations of plants on campus and so extent the coverage the CampusFlora apps to beyond only the trees.

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.
