New Biodiversity Book Outlines Australia’s Assets

“This publication is an invaluable resource for anyone managing Australia’s ecosystems,” he said.

“The book provides an important bridge from our scientists to the wider Australian community.”

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

CSIRO launches new publication

“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,” she said.

Dr Clark said the book’s 192 pages provided scientific insights including: the ancient origins and unique features of Australia’s species, as well as the current status of our biodiversity on land and in rivers, lakes and the sea; tools for management and planning, including Australia’s protected area system; Indigenous perspectives on biodiversity; and how Australia’s biodiversity interacts with agriculture, the resources sector, and cities.
