Biographies

Dr Ross Squire spent his 48-year career in forestry research and education. His work with the Victorian Government included management of forests research and education programs, including research on long-term productivity of pine plantations and the silviculture and management of eucalypts. He has published extensively on silvicultural management including eucalypt plantations and native forests, and was a referee and editor of a special issue of , a regional journal of forestry science and forest management.

Ross commenced his career as a Research Officer, Research Branch, Forests Commission, Victoria. The Commission was amalgamated with various other State Government Departments from the mid-1980s. In 1993, the name of the amalgamated entity was the Department of Conservation and Environment.

Ross Squire's work of 30 years with the Victorian Government culminated when he had full responsibility for the management of both the Forests Research Program, and the Victorian School of Forestry and Land Management. He led the design and implementation of two major multi-disciplinary silvicultural research projects in Victoria: (1970s to 1980s), and (mid-1980 to early 1990s).

He worked privately for a further 18 years, directing a consulting company specialising in silviculture and education. From 2001-2002, he assisted CSIRO Forests and Forests Products to develop and manage a project for the Australian Greenhouse Office to describe the effects of management practices in Australia on carbon stocks in the nation's forest estate. He became a Churchill Fellow in 1976 and in the early 1990s was forestry representative on CSIRO's former Agricultural Sector Advisory Committee.

In 2011, Ross Squire was invited to edit, referee, and write the Foreword for the special issue FORESTCHECK of , comprising 10 papers on the conservation of biodiversity in the Jarrah (Eucalyptus marginata) forests of south-west Western Australia.
