Mangroves cover <0.03% of the Earth’s surface yet account for ~14% of oceanic carbon burial.
Lindsay Hutley is a plant physiologist with expertise in plant ecology, ecophysiology, ecohydrology, land-atmosphere exchange and soil science. Lindsay completed his PhD in forest hydrology/botany at the University of Queensland. Lindsay held several post-doctoral fellowships at Charles Darwin University and is now a Professor in the Research Institute for the Environment and Livelihoods. His recent work has focused on quantifying fluxes of carbon, water and energy balance from a range of ecosystems, including mangroves, temperate old-growth forests and Eucalypt-dominated tropical savanna ecosystems of north Australia.
