To mitigate climate change we might have to re-examine the rules which define carbon credit-worthy sequestration actions – that might include renting, rather than buying.
Most plant research focuses on grown plants or on seedling behaviour. It is only now that researchers are beginning to examine seed traits and how the beginning of a plant’s life affects everything which comes after.
Dr Andy Steven details the impressive technology CSIRO is using to lead the way in oceans and coasts observations and monitoring research.
The eReefs program monitors the Great Barrier Reef using satellite sensors high above the planet’s surface and from a unique marine observatory far below located in coastal waters of the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area.
While underwater drones, robots and satellites have a well-earned place in monitoring the state of our oceans and climate, we also look to ship-based measurements for first-rate data.
The next-gen of ocean robots are helping researchers understand one of the last, and greatest, frontiers.
A vast range of ocean moorings around Australia is uncovering the mysteries of what happens under the waves, gathering data on what the future holds.
The humble but prolific house mouse on a remote Western Australian island might serve a crucial purpose for scientists investigating the potential of gene modification as an environmental control for conservation. Community values – as well as science – will determine what’s both possible and acceptable.
