Now is an exciting time in ecosystem observation, research and management. A number of national and global initiatives, including TERN, have common visions and the same date for goal evaluation, 2025. We take a look at TERN’s 2025 vision and provide a pathway for Australia to become the global leader in ecosystem science.
New TERN monitoring sites along the Biodiversity and Adaptation Transect Sydney are set to deliver more cohesive ecosystem information at multiple scales and lead to improved understanding of spatial and temporal environmental changes.
Federal investment in TERN, via the NCRIS programme, is bearing fruit for Australia’s industry sectors. TERN is facilitating science that is enabling sustainable and enhanced productivity of our food, fibre, fuel and natural resource based industries and is offering greater efficiency and effectiveness in environmental assessment and management.
NCRIS and CSIRO data providers and the University of Melbourne invite you to register for a weekend Hackfest on March 4-6. This is a rare opportunity to work with data experts from across the country and overseas and with data from Australia's biggest data generators.
In our Summer TERN eNewsletter we project forward in time to 2025 and focus on some of the challenges and exciting opportunities that face the ecosystem science community.
A number of the long-term data sets from research featured in the book 'Biodiversity and Environmental Change: Monitoring, Challenges and Direction' have just been published by our Long Term Ecological Research Network (LTERN). These data and their stories, now openly available via LTERN's web site, and are an invaluable resource for ecologists, environmental managers and policy makers.
