CSIRO, the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation, is Australia's national science agency and one of the largest and most diverse research agencies in the world.
Large-scale, long-term, multidisciplinary science to address Australia's major national challenges and opportunities.
CSIRO expertise is organised into 11 research areas
CSIRO manages national facilities and collections that are opened to researchers around Australia and overseas.
Our publications repository contains records of more than 80 years of CSIRO research publications, such as journal articles, conference papers, books and reports. Some recent records may have full-text attachments available where copyright and confidentiality conditions permit.
The repository is fully searchable. You can also browse the collection
by author or publication date.
You can access the repository using
the search tool on this
page or from the repository home page.
'Best practice' carbon farming that considers more than just the carbon in trees is needed if the full benefits of trees in the landscape are to be realised by farmers, landholders, and the community.
Metrics on resource use and productivity currently used by governments suggest that some developed countries have achieved a relative or absolute decoupling of economic growth and resource use. Using the material footprint as a consumption-based indicator of resource use we find the contrary.
A team of international scientists has isolated a very close relative of the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV) from horseshoe bats in China, confirming them as the origin of the virus responsible for the 2002-2003 pandemic.
Longhorn Beetles — Cerambycidae are one of the most easily recognised groups of beetles, a family that worldwide encompasses over 33,000 species in 5,200 genera. With over 1,400 species classified in 300 genera, this is the sixth largest among 117 beetle families in Australia.
In continental environment, sediment mobilisation, dispersion and deposition are mainly controlled by mass gravity and stream-flow processes. Alluvial sedimentary systems have an important economic value because of their capacity to host mineral resources.
An innovative new approach to sugarcane plantation weed management trialled in select Great Barrier Reef catchments have shown a dramatic 90 per cent reduction in runoff of highly soluble herbicides into waterways.
Australia's south-east region is recognised as a global hotspot for rising sea surface temperatures. Impacts from this rapid change have already been recorded for coastal marine species, but with sparse decadal-scale, high quality datasets available, we remain poorly informed as to the detail of how change unfolds and which species may be affected.
Thin metal-organic framework (MOF) films are patterned using UV lithography and an imprinting technique.
Historically in Australia, some environmental domains have been relatively well served by operational environmental monitoring, and in some instances, forecasting capability. However, in environmental domains such as biodiversity, it is recognised there is a general lack of consistent information available at continental scales to support decision-making.
DNA is a universally important molecule that encodes genetic information for the development and function of all life. Here we show a novel non-genetic role for DNA.
