TERN’s ACEAS facility has produced a website to show the wealth of projects, research and management plans about Indigenous Biocultural Knowledge. It will enable the community, both aboriginal and non-aboriginal, to better appreciate the spatial and temporal information from indigenous knowledge that can be utilised for decision-making and research.
Airborne LiDAR data are becoming an integral part of Australian ecosystem science and the infrastructure TERN provides is enabling researchers around Australia and the world to access it. LiDAR data are currently available for download for nine sites around Australia with data from AusCover’s latest field campaign in Tasmania available soon.
We all rely on the technology that’s orbiting the Earth, some of us more than others. Safeguarding our critical research infrastructure ensures you don’t miss a minute of the World Cup and, more importantly, can continue to access detailed remotely sensed imagery for scientific studies from networks like TERN.
his month we celebrate the many kinds of research infrastructure that have been successfully delivered through TERN, and explore the positive impacts for our ecosystem science and management communities, as well as for Australians more generally.
Media release, 15 July 2014: The first national strategy for ecosystem science, to underpin Australia’s future growth, sustainability and prosperity, will be unveiled in Canberra today. The plan aims to ensure that in 2035, Australia’s managed and natural ecosystems will remain in as good a shape to support the industries, native wildlife, landscapes and community wellbeing in the future as they are today.
The value of TERN's research infrastructure will be highlighted by a number of presentations at next week's 51st meeting of the Association for Tropical Biology and Conservation in Cairns. Find out which TERN associated researches will be presenting in this quick summary.
Our final report for NCRIS, representing three years of commitment and vision towards building an ecosystem science research network for Australia, is now availble.
