Ecological data and information

 

Ecological data underpins modelling and risk assessments which identify and prioritise land management practices. Having current data and information at the forefront of adaptation practices ensures the best outcomes for species and ecological communities.

The research projects in this theme focused on collating current ecological data on the environmental and climate niches of NSW species to understand how they may be affected by increasing temperatures, shifts in rainfall patterns, and increases in the intensity and frequency of extreme weather events.

This research has significantly increased the baseline ecological data on species’ environmental and climate tolerance, species ranges for flora and fauna and adaptive capacity traits. The information can be used to enable the identification and prioritisation of populations for management and adaptation opportunities that might be at significant risk of climatic shifts. The information is also in a single location to be used for further research into climate change impacts on NSW and Australian native species.
