Monitoring, measuring and conserving biodiversity

With Australia's biodiversity in steep decline, CSIRO researchers are leading the efforts to build fundamental knowledge on the nature, extent and history of our native species. We work closely with our partner organisations to ensure a consistent approach to biodiversity monitoring and conservation across the country.

  • Implications of climate change for Australia's biodiversity

    CSIRO's landmark Australia-wide assessment of the impacts of climate change on biodiversity and the National Reserve System will inform future management of Australia's protected areas.

  • Making better biodiversity conservation decisions

    Our research is helping to answer urgent questions about where to invest limited resources for biodiversity conservation and how to get the best possible outcomes from that investment.

  • Great Western Woodlands

    We are working with a network of Australian scientists to help understand and manage Western Australia’s 16 million hectare Great Western Woodlands.

  • North Australian Tropical Transect

    The North Australian Tropical Transect provides a framework for monitoring and modelling the dynamics of Australia's tropical savannas.

  • Invertebrate biodiversity and ecosystem function in northern Australia

    Land managers are increasingly looking for reliable indicators of ecosystem health that can be used to assess the ecological sustainability of land management practices, and are finding that invertebrate organisms, such as ants, termites and beetles, are ideal for this role.
