Fire and carbon in regional Australia
This project is identifying the biophysical, economic and social opportunities for remote communities relating to land management for greenhouse gas abatement, with a focus on fire management in tropical savannas.
Management and control of bridal creeper
CSIRO scientists have spearheaded the bridal creeper biological control program in Australia through the introduction, monitoring and redistribution of three agents to help control and manage the spread of this environmental weed.

The shared water resources of the Murray-Darling Basin (Part 1)
This 29-page report is the first of a two-part series which outlines the major water characteristics of the Murray-Darling Basin and evaluates the relative importance of different sources and uses of water and criteria for establishing research priorities.
Dr Tim Heard: the insect tracker
On the hunt for exotic species for biological control use in Australia, Dr Tim Heard, a Senior Research Scientist at CSIRO, often finds himself in faraway places offering rewarding experiences.
The hunt for useful exotic animal and plant species has taken Dr Tim Heard, a tropical weeds senior research scientist, to faraway places.
Willow sawfly, first identified in Australia in 2005 and now well established in the ACT and surrounding areas (Queanbeyan, Braidwood and Cooma) of south east New South Wales (NSW), attacks both pest and amenity willows.
CSIRO cane toad research
CSIRO scientists have explored the use of gene technology to reduce the number of Australian cane toads.
Pest resistant cotton mite be a little closer
CSIRO scientist Dr Junji Miyazaki has found that not all types of cotton are susceptible to common pests like mites and whitefly. By understanding the physiological basis for resistance, cotton breeders might be able to include resistance mechanisms in future cotton varieties and thereby further reduce pesticide use.
