Field Sample Library

Tens of thousands of soil samples, soil metagenomic samples, plant voucher specimens and plant genetic material collected from TERN’s national network of over 700 ecosystem surveillance sites are now openly available to interested researchers.

Soil samples are held by TERN’s Ecosystem Surveillance platform at the University of Adelaide.

Plant samples collected by TERN are contributed to regional herbaria, with some samples stored by TERN’s Ecosystem Surveillance platform.
