Research focus

Our research focuses on:

  • threats to biodiversity and ecosystem function
  • challenges in agricultural sustainability
  • sustainable development.  

We study patterns and process in ecosystems and integrate diverse branches of knowledge to inform land managers and policy makers on how best to protect and capture the benefits of those ecosystems.  

Our scientists are addressing and seeking solutions to national and global challenges.
