With the Australian Government’s $142.5 million National Environmental Science Programme (NESP) now in full swing we take this opportunity to revisit our discussions with hub leaders and hear about some exciting new research using TERN’s nation-wide infrastructure to protect our biodiversity.
TERN data and infrastructure have been used to map South Australia’s biodiversity hotspots, identify their climate change sensitivity, and ultimately inform priorities and strategies for conservation management.
TERN has enabled Australian researchers to take a leading international role in the development of the IUCN Red List of Ecosystems, positioning Australia to be a global leader with this significant initiative.
In our October TERN eNewsletter we feature three of the latest examples of TERN’s impact on ecosystem science and land management in Australia. TERN's shared ecosystem observatory infrastructure is allowing Australia’s scientists and managers to collaborate and synthesise effectively across regions and disciplines, leading to impacts both internationally and locally.
Do you want to play an active role in shaping and building a strong future for Australia’s ecosystem science community? Then consider nominating for the Ecosystem Science Council.
In yet another example of the international reach by Australia’s ecosystem science community, TERN experts will join CSIRO to assist the UN Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) in the development of methodologies and “Good Practice Guidance” for an indicator of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
