Dr Gillian Rapson

Senior Lecturer in Ecology / Zoology

Institute of Agriculture and Environment

I have more than 25 years of employment history with Massey University, with broad-ranging interests in vegetation of New Zealand, its place in the world, and its responses to disturbances, circulated via 50 referred and at least 11 non-refereed publications. I have extensive service to the profession through journal editing, past curation of the Dame Ella Campbell Herbarium, and roles in several local community organisations. My teaching roles cover many aspects of plant ecology, as well as teaching outside my speciality, and supervision to date of about 20 post-graduate students.

I'm concerned about the state of our planet, and that we need to leave anything for future generations.

I like the outdoors, and enjoy field work, and meeting new ecosystems and new plants.

I'm fussy about details, and I like a tidy office and tidy files.

I do a lot of science editing, and can red-pen anything (as my grad students quickly learn).

Research Expertise

Research Interests

My research topic is vulnerability of vegetation to both endogenous and anthropogenic disturbances and how these impact on ecosystem sustainability. I investigate how vegetation (esp. New Zealand's) normally functions, and how it responds to novel perturbations (often due to human impacts), compared with changes within its evolutionary "experience", as a measure of vegetation's vulnerability. Focus is on wetlands and short-turf vegetation, e.g. dunes, grasslands, urban areas and alpine vegetation, but I work in a range of vegetation types as the situation permits. I am aiming for the point where generalisation to vulnerability issues will become appropriate.

My approach is to use survey and other field techniques, complemented by lab studies where necessary, and using modern analytical techniques, though I also maintain a large database, compiled from bibliographic sources, which is shared with colleagues. Where possible I incorporate students, both post-grad. and under-grad. into my research, as they bring lots of energy and enthusiasm, as well as novel ideas. I am meticulously accurate in my data collation, and paper preparation, aiming to present uncontrovertible material.
