  1. Southern hemisphere synthesis QUAVIDA Network: Aims to synthesise records of changing vegetation patterns over the last 70,000 years using pollen, plant macrofossil, stickrat midden and isotopic data AND records of changing fire regimes from charcoal data

  2. The Team • Sandy P. Harrison: database, coordination • John Dodson: palaeoenvironmental data • David Bowman: isotopes • Ross Bradstock: PFT and traits, fire ecology • Pauline Grierson: fire, pollen • Simon Haberle: pollen, isotopes, charcoal • Katherine Harle: pollen, plant macros • Geoff Hope: pollen, plant macros • Pandora Hope: climate modelling • Guy Midgley: fire, vegetation, PFTs • Scott Mooney: charcoal • Rewi Newnham: pollen • Stuart Pearson: stickrat middens • Colin Prentice: modelling • Fiona Scarff: PFTs, veg ecology • Lynley Wallis: archaeological data • Janet Wilmshurst: pollen, palaeoenvironments • Cassandra Rowe: database, data-model comparisons • Rebecca Fraser: isotope database, , data-model comparisons

  3. Funded workshops • 20-23rd February 2007: Workshop on palaeoenvironmental records and databases • July 2007: Workshop on trait-based classification of Australasian plants and plant functional types • February 2008: Workshop on reconstruction of palaeovegetation patterns and fire regimes • July 2008: Workshop on data-model comparisons

  4. Data availability • December 2006: preliminary version of charcoal data available to IGBP FTI members • July 2007: preliminary version of multi-proxy database available to project members • December 2008: multi-proxy database made public
