- targeted biodiversity and taxonomy products to support efficient system monitoring
- environmental monitoring systems and decision-support tools.
The hub will also drive coordinated research across all 4 new hubs under NESP’s ‘threatened and migratory species and threatened ecological communities’ cross-cutting mission. This research will support policy development, program management and regulatory processes aimed at protecting Australia’s environmental assets in terrestrial, Ramsar and marine environments.
