Dr Sharolyn Anderson is a senior lecturer at UniSA’s School of Natural and Built Environments. Her research project looks at the economic value of the services that are provided by nature at the example of the Adelaide park lands. Together with her team, Dr Anderson asked and answered the question – what is the dollar value of the ecosystem services for the Adelaide park lands. This project aligns with UniSA’s research theme ‘Scarce Resources’ and ‘Healthy Futures’.
