Resilience of Landscapes and Aquatic Systems

This research stream evaluates the health of landscapes and aquatic systems and explores appropriate measures for their remediation.

It coordinates initiatives that drive regional-scale ecological rehabilitation of aquatic and terrestrial systems based on sound evidence. These efforts include our work at the Nanya Research Station.

A goal of this stream is to understand, quantify and manage threats emerging from climate change on sustainability, resilience and the restoration capacity of landscapes and aquatic systems by also recognising the history of climate and environment in our region.

Engagement with First Nations people will inform the practices of this research stream.
