It is with great sadness ECU marks the passing of Dr David Goodall AM.

Dr Goodall was a highly respected ecologist, authoring more than 100 research publications and supervising numerous students.

His career spanned more than seven decades and took him around the world, with positions at the University of Reading, University of California and CSIRO. He retired in 1979.

In 1998 ECU appointed him as an Honorary Research Associate (and was later appointed an Honorary Research Fellow), a role he held up until his passing. In 2016 he was made a Member of the Order of Australia, recognising his contribution to the field of ecology.

On behalf of the entire ECU community, I extend my sincerest condolences to his family during this time.
