The weed mimosa threatens sensitive wetlands in northern Australia and CSIRO is engaged in the biological control battle.
CSIRO joins global fight against pandemic threats
Australian scientists are part of an international consortium creating ‘battle maps’ that visualise how bird flu and other viruses constantly mutate to camouflage their antigens, or ‘invading soldiers’, to avoid being neutralised by the immune system’s ‘artillery’.
Landscape and building design for bushfire areas
Design for bushfire to be included as a normal part of designing in bushfire-prone areas is encouraged by this book. It will assist planning and building regulatory authorities to improve and administer regulatory requirements and guidelines.

Scientists join fight against frog diseases
CSIRO is collaborating with other Australian research institutions, and conservation groups, to identify new and emerging diseases affecting frog populations in Far North Queensland.
AAHL set to meet growing biosecurity challenge
Australia’s ability to protect itself from incursions of diseases such as avian flu, rabies and SARS has been strengthened with a funding boost of $A16.8 million over four years to the Australian Animal Health Laboratory (AAHL), which is managed by CSIRO.
The smart software fighting fire with #fire
Australia's key disaster management agencies have joined forces to tackle the problem of how to access and interpret information gathered during bushfires, and other natural disasters to help emergency services save lives and property.
Science for our environment
CSIRO and its partners seek to develop solutions to Australia’s environmental challenges.
CSIRO is committed to the challenge of using science, combined with community and industry knowledge, to make sure that our ecosystems are sustainable for the long term prosperity of Australia.
