DNA reveals new population diversity in Indian Ocean’s tuna stocks
New DNA and microchemistry analysis reveals multiple populations among the Indian Ocean’s tunas and will underpin improved fisheries management.
Overcoming a chemically limited future for weed, pest and disease control in agriculture
Agriculture uses an array of chemicals to control weeds, pests and diseases. However, a systems approach to reduce, redesign or replace chemical use will be needed to meet new demands.
Buying time for the Barrier Reef – shading coral and controlling starfish show promise at large scale
Shading corals to reduce mass bleaching and expanding the control of coral-eating crown-of-thorns starfish—if socially acceptable and done on a large scale—could buy at least 10 to 20 years for the Great Barrier Reef, according to scientists who have for the first time modelled all of the world’s biggest marine ecosystem.
eReefs: integrated environmental intelligence for managing the Reef
This interactive platform puts information about management options and past, present, and future conditions of the Reef at users’ flipper-tips.
A complete DNA barcode library to manage Australia’s environment
eDNA is poised to revolutionise the way we monitor Australia’s natural environment but it relies on a complete reference library of DNA barcodes. That's where we step in. CSIRO is working with partners to create this library for Australia’s most important species.
