Professor David Lindenmayer "has made a major and sustained long-term contribution to the conservation of Australia's biodiversity and the ecologically sustainable management of Australia's natural environment over the past 24 years. He has established and maintained four large-scale research programs on biodiversity conservation and natural resource management in south-eastern Australia spanning forests, plantations, woodlands, and agricultural areas. Together these programs encompass over 90 research projects that have the common aim of identifying better ways of conserving biodiversity while at the same time enabling the ecologically sustainable use or management of key resources - native forest harvesting, plantation forestry, agricultural grazing and cropping - or managing fire regimes.

"Through extensive scientific publications, numerous popular and semi-popular books and work with over 5000 volunteers at over 30 Earthwatch field camps, David's work has influenced government, non-government, conservation and industry organisations, as well as the general public." [1]
