Professor Dianne Edwards is a botanist who carries out interdisciplinary research relating to the invasion of the land by plants, some 400 million years ago and the impact of early land vegetation on the evolution of animals, lithosphere and atmosphere.

Research Areas

Professor Dianne Edwards research specialises in the thorough morphological and anatomical descriptions of the fossils using a wide range of techniques including scanning and transmission electron microscopy. With such a data base it becomes possible to speculate more confidently on the evolution, palaeoecology, palaeophysiology and phytogeography of the plants and their roles in early terrestrial ecosystems.
