Milton, Sue J.

Mrs Sue Milton

Early research on reproductive ecology of invasive alien Acacia species, productivity and phenology of African Acacia species and of the fern Rumohra adiantiformis in response to harvesting. Past 30 years research has focussed on effects of herbivory on growth, flowering, seed set, demography and population and community dynamics in Karoo rangelands. Currently run an ecological consulting business and an indigenous seed and plant production nursery in the southern central Karoo at Prince Albert.
