Our work spans the genetics of seeds right through to sustainable forestry practices to better understand the flora of Australia.
We're developing strategies for keeping Australia's forests productive and healthy into the future, so that they continue to provide us with a range of products and services like timber, habitat and clean water. This research contributes to carbon sequestration and forest sustainability.
