Ants give clues to ecosystem health
Ants and other invertebrates are helping scientists to evaluate ecosystem health and recovery rates in northern Australia.
The use of ants and other invertebrates as ‘bioindicators’ is enabling scientists to assess the restoration of mining sites, as well as the management of fires and grazing in tropical savannas.

Cloud-based image analysis and processing toolbox
We're using the National eResearch Collaboration Tools and Resources (NeCTAR) cloud infrastructure to provide improved access to biomedical image processing and analysis software packages to researchers.
Insect imaging system to accelerate species discovery
Scientists around the world are looking for innovative ways to accelerate the identification of new species. CSIRO scientists are developing an automated insect imaging system that will speed up the process of naming thousands of new species every year.
Analyser puts water problems to bed
Researchers have enhanced moisture analyser technology so that it is better suited to the increased conveyor-bed depths used by today’s iron ore and coal producers.
The CSIRO Network Theory Working Group is applying this area of Complex Systems Science to a number of real-world social, ecological and economic issues.
The CSIRO agent-based modelling working group (CABM) is applying this area of complex systems science to a number of real-world social, ecological and economic issues.
Wash and wear wool suits looking smart
CSIRO research on machine washable wool-rich suits has led to the creation of a comprehensive set of fabric and process specifications that have been applied by washable suit manufacturers in China, India and Australia.
Engineering underpins processing capabilities
A pilot-scale sintering facility in Queensland, Australia is helping researchers better understand the processing behaviour of lower-grade iron ores – information crucial for achieving the best sinter performance from these resources while reducing the process’s environmental impact.
