Research drawing upon TERN’s collection of more than 100,000 environmental samples provides new understanding on the adaptation of plants to climate change. Read on to find out which set of factors combine to create predictable relationships between plant traits and the changing environment.
This edition we highlight RMIT University’s Centre for Environmental Sustainability and Remediation (EnSuRe) and its research and work with industry to minimise the impact of land, water and air pollution.
New research has critically reviewed the main types of environmental monitoring and recommended the widespread adoption of three classifications to provide consistency and clarity. The scheme allows scientists and land managers to design programs suited to their needs that inform on multiple aspects of ecosystem change. It sets researchers in good stead to understand some of our greatest environmental challenges.
This month we head to the Northern Tablelands region of NSW to look at the University of New England’s SMART Farms and the range of ecosystem data collected on properties used predominantly for agriculture.
A detailed rationale and description of TERN’s much respected AusPlots method for environmental monitoring has been published in a peer-reviewed international science journal. With the paper’s publication, it becomes easier for researchers to access the method and its modules, adapt them for use anywhere and cite them in further research. Wider use of the protocol helps TERN to learn more about researchers’ future needs.
This month we head to the nation’s capital to showcase research that’s improving our understanding of the environment and enhancing decision-making for natural resource management and sustainable development.
This month we aim our spotlight on the Centre for Integrative Ecology at Deakin University and its interdisciplinary research that aims to address how life …
Temperatures up, rainfall down, and the destruction of vegetation and ecosystems by drought, fire and land clearing continued. That is the main conclusion from Australia’s Environment in 2019, the latest in an annual series of environmental condition reports, released today.
Sustainable Timber Tasmania’s senior conservation planner is using the ecological understandings generated from the TERN Warra Tall Eucalypt SuperSite—Australia’s oldest LTER site—to develop a landscape …
