Molecular Ecologist

Dr Laurence Clarke

Dr Clarke uses genetic approaches to inform management of biodiversity in the face of threats such as invasive species, habitat fragmentation and climate change.

As ARC post-doctoral fellow at the Australian Centre for Ancient DNA (ACAD, University of Adelaide), Dr Clarke led a group using environmental DNA (eDNA) approaches and high-throughput sequencing to perform biodiversity surveys in aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems.

His research experience includes; population genetics studies on several plant species; exploring the environmental determinants of vegetation patterns at spring-fed wetlands in central Australia; investigating UV-screening strategies of Antarctic mosses; and analysing radioactive and stable carbon isotope profiles to explore the influence of environmental change on Antarctic plants.
