Understanding biodiversity in water resource assessments in northern Australia
Northern Australia contains diverse and important river and coastal systems with high natural values including species and habitats of national […]
Answering the question: where is that species found?
It’s becoming more important than ever to know where plants and animals live, and why. A CSIRO researcher who has been in the field for decades is encouraging everyone to take a fresh look.
Tapping into water monitoring with Vesi™ sensor technology
CSIRO’s automated real-time in-situ groundwater monitoring system Vesi™ has funding to dive into new territories to revolutionise the way industries and utilities can manage water quality.
Wastewater-treatment for inland, remote, water-stressed regions
Humans have re-used wastewater for thousands of years. As demand for fresh water supplies grow, communities need improved water re-use technologies to give them resilient, sustainable and high-quality water stocks.
The benefits of proactively planning for infrastructure resilience
With Australians facing the prospect of ‘big wets’ and ‘long drys’, a group of researchers at CSIRO explain why we need to shift our approach in decision-making when investing in resilient infrastructure.
Can engineering biology feed more people with fewer resources?
A changing climate, declining arable lands and an increasing demand for more environmentally friendly products is making us think outside the box when it comes to food production and traditional agricultural production. How can we produce more food with fewer resources?
New light on native pollinators
For many decades Australia’s native pollinators have lived in the shadow of the honeybee. In this article, we shine some light on the intricate roles of a group of tiny moths that pollinate boronias.
