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.
As the saying goes, forewarned is forearmed. Decadal forecasting can provide an assessment of probabilities for the climate system over the next one to 10 years, important inside knowledge for industries affected by climate.
Magpie geese flock in their thousands in the Northern Territory, along the coastal flooplains. But what impact could sea level rise have on their habitat?
