Climate-ready conservation objectives: A scoping study – NCCARF
This project developed a ‘climate ready’ approach to managing biodiversity to accommodate many ecological changes, remain relevant over time and conserve multiple dimensions that are valued by society.
The implications of climate change for biodiversity conservation and the National Reserve System: Final Synthesis – CSIRO
Protected areas are a crucial component of strategies for conserving biodiversity; however, their selection and design are usually not informed about the impacts of climate change. To inform future management of protected areas in Australia under climate change scenarios, this project produced the first Australia-wide, assessment of the magnitude of ecological impact that climate change could have on biodiversity, using three state-of-the-art quantitative techniques.
Implications for policymakers: climate change, biodiversity conservation and the National Reserve System - CSIRO
CSIRO recently completed an in-depth analysis of the effects of climate change on Australian biodiversity and the implications for conservation and the National Reserve System (NRS). This project produced a series of technical reports, regionally focused ecological analyses and a final synthesis report (Dunlop et al. 2012).
