CSIRO and the ANU launch biodiversity research centre

By Barcham - 2 April 2013 0

The CSIRO and ANU will announce an initiative to help better our understanding of our environment at the official launch of the Centre for Biodiversity Analysis tomorrow.

“The Centre is drawing on CSIRO and ANU’s world class expertise, and harnessing new and emerging technologies in biodiversity science to improve our knowledge of Australia’s biodiversity and enable governments and conservation NGOs to translate policy into meaningful actions,” said Professor Craig Moritz, Director of the Centre for Biodiversity Analysis.

“It’s estimated that Australia is home to over half a million unique living species, many of which are found nowhere else on Earth, but of these only about one third are known to science.”
