Dr Robert Lamont undertook his PhD in ecological genetics at the University of the Sunshine Coast investigating polyploidy, apomixis, hybridisation and cryptic speciation in an association of microspecies belonging to the genus, Allocasuarina (She-Oaks). Rob’s research as a molecular ecologist specialises in the development and characterisation of microsatellite markers, chloroplast and mitochondrial DNA sequencing, cytogenetics, and genetic data analysis, and is focused on the conservation genetics and fire ecology of threatened plant and animal species.


Key publications of Dr Rob Lamont's are available from the USC Research Bank.
