Computer models will inform the delivery of Murray-Darling environmental waters to restore the flows that support thriving native fish populations.
CSIRO scientists have developed new tools to help control two feral pests wrecking havoc above and below the waters of the Murray-Darling Basin: the willow tree and the carp.
Understanding human impact on the water cycle is a tricky business – one clue is to be found in evapotranspiration. Novel use of satellite data is helping us measure something we can’t see.
Three quarters of the species that live in Australia don’t exist anywhere else in the world. We’re digitisation our collections to make the data easily available to have bigger impacts in areas like conservation, biosecurity and climate change.
For the first time, scientists have quantified how much water trees on the Murray-Darling floodplain need, and when they need it. The results show that we cannot tell the health of a tree just by looking at its canopy—we need to look inside the tree.
Global trade means global pests – not just in the way they spread but in the way they breed. Hybridisation of two moth species has now been confirmed, creating a fast-generating, pesticide-resistant mega pest which threatens broad-acre crops across the Americas. What’s next?
Out of the ashes of the Tathra bushfire, and stories of heartbreaking loss and survival, a picture is emerging of how research is helping to save properties and improve bushfire outcomes.
A new field guide to the sharks and rays of Papua New Guinea is supporting sustainable use of its shark and ray resources.
