Biodiversity Adaptation

Research Topics

Led by Macquarie University, with support from CSIRO, the Biodiversity Node of the NSW Adaptation Research Hub focuses on increasing knowledge to support the management of biodiversity and ecosystems under climate change. It aimed to increase understanding of the capacity of species, ecosystems and landscapes to adapt to climate variance, identify refuges where species can survive extreme events and explore how integrated decision-making on local land-use can optimise outcomes for biodiversity.
