Biodiversity: Science and Solutions for Australia
Biodiversity Science Solutions For Australia

CSIRO’s new book provides the latest scientific knowledge on Australia’s biodiversity. The book describes the unique features of Australia’s species and focuses on solutions for the future.

Capturing the latest information on Australia’s biodiversity, the book aims to provide business, government, and the community with practical solutions to managing Australia’s globally unique natural assets.

“CSIRO’s book draws together the latest science to identify practical solutions to the many challenges that face Australia’s unique biodiversity, which include habitat fragmentation, altered fire regimes, invasive species, harvesting of species, and species decline,” said Dr Megan Clark, CSIRO Chief Executive.

“The book draws on CSIRO’s 90 years of research into biodiversity, as well as insights from the broader community, including research organisations, industry, all levels of government and the wider community.”

You can download PDFs of the book here, and view videos about the chapters here.

Many of the photos in this book come from the Ecosystem Change Ecology team, featuring some of the beautiful locations we are lucky enough to visit during our fieldwork.  You will also see us featured in the accompanying videos.
