Emeritus Professor Bill Jackson is remembered as an academic, botanist, ecologist and geneticist. He was all of these things and much more. He was a truly inspirational teacher who made time available to students regardless of what else was on. An insightful researcher, he established the core principles of ecological theory that describe the processes shaping the Tasmanian vegetation. He was a leader and visionary who saw the way forward in botanical research and fostered its development over nearly 50 years.
