Effective ecosystem monitoring requires a multi-scaled approach

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.

Trusted environmental monitoring protocol

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.
