About Jill Landsberg

Jill Landsberg's outstanding contributions to ecology extended back 25 years. The common theme to Jill's ecological research interests was the conservation of biodiversity in landscapes managed mainly for primary production. She also made a significant contribution to the conservation of threatened species, through her long service on the Australian Government's Endangered Species Scientific Advisory Committee. Jill Landsberg was well known to all members of the Ecological Society of Australia as a tireless worker in support of the Society's core business. She was one of the longest serving members on the Society's Council, having served as Bulletin Editor and Regional Councillor with great distinction, and as a primary organiser of three ESA conferences.
