From our broad range of collections down to specific case studies on animals, plants and ecosystems, we're studying a range of Australian animals and plants to better understand, protect and strengthen our rich biodiversity.
From the detailed studies of the Australian National Insect Collection through to our complex work on insect ecology, we've got Australian insects under the microscope.
From invasions of ants, fruit flies, rabbits and carp through to plants that grow where they're not wanted, we're tackling a range of pests in the Australian environment.
From tracking sharks to tracing evolution of birds, we're up close and personal with a range of animals.
We’re investigating the ecology, bio-geography and taxonomy of sharks and rays, and their population dynamics, to support fisheries, conservation and biodiversity management in Australia and neighbouring nations.
The release of the two rabbit biocontrol agents - Myxoma virus and Rabbit Calicivirus - led to a dramatic reduction of Australia’s rabbit population and has recovered more than $70 billion to the agricultural industries since 1950.
