The O’Reilly-Wapstra Lab: Research with BITE!

The BITE Group is based at The University of Tasmania and our research focuses on two main streams: biotic interactions and terrestrial ecology in forest systems. We employ a genetic framework to better understand the evolutionary ecology of forest trees, how they influence interactions with associated herbivores and pathogens, and how they have extended biotic community and ecosystem effects. We investigate and address wildlife management and biodiversity issues in forested landscapes of high commercial, conservation and restoration value.

The group is lead by Julianne O’Reilly-Wapstra and if you want to know more about what we do, keep reading this site, or email Julianne on It would be great to hear from you.
