Kingsley Dixon was appointed Vice Chair of the SER Board of Directors on 1 July. Kingsley is a restoration ecologist and conservation biologist, Professor and Director of the newly founded Center for Mining Restoration with 30 years experience in restoration focused on mine site and urban interface restoration and conservation practice. Kingsley is also the Chair of SER’s Australasian chapter and was a founder of SER's International Network for Seed-Based Restoration Section.

The discovery of the chemical in smoke that stimulates plant germination after bushfires set Kingsley on a journey that’s now seen him awarded Curtin University’s highest honour for academic staff: the title of John Curtin Distinguished Professor. Learn more about his work here.
