About this book

This is data-rich book demonstrates the value of existing national long-term ecological research in Australia for monitoring environmental change and biodiversity.

Long-term ecological data are critical for informing trends in biodiversity and environmental change. The Terrestrial Ecosystem Research Network (TERN) is a major initiative of the Australian Government and one of its key areas of investment is to provide funding for a network of long-term ecological research plots around Australia (LTERN).

LTERN researchers and other authors in Biodiversity and Environmental Change have maintained monitoring sites, often for one or more decades, in an array of different ecosystems across the Australian continent – ranging from tropical rainforests, wet eucalypt forests and alpine regions through to rangelands and deserts. Biodiversity and Environmental Change highlights some of the temporal changes in the environment that have occurred in the various systems in which dedicated field-based ecologists have worked. Many important trends and changes are documented and they often provide new insights that were previously poorly understood or unknown. These data are precisely the kinds of data so desperately needed to better quantify the temporal trajectories in the environment in Australia.

By presenting trend patterns (and often also the associated data) the authors aim to catalyse governments and other organisations to better recognise the importance of long-term data collection and monitoring as a fundamental part of ecologically-effective and cost-effective management of the environment and biodiversity.

He has published 35 other books as well as over 800 scientific publications, which have covered issues associated with ecological and biodiversity monitoring. David is a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Science and an ARC Laureate Fellow.

Emma Burns is a conservation biologist in the Fenner School of Environment and Society and Executive Director of the Long Term Ecological Research Network (LTERN) within TERN. Since completing her doctoral research on conservation genetics and phylogeography, she has worked in various roles in consulting, research and government (both state and Commonwealth). She has published on diverse topics in ecological research, conservation management and environmental policy.

Nicole Thurgate is an Associate Professor of Research at the University of Adelaide and the director of the Multi-Scale Plot Network within TERN. She has worked in the field of conservation biology for 20 years and published on a range of taxa and a variety of scales (from single species to landscape ecology). Nicole has also held positions within state and Commonwealth government and is committed to bridging the divide between science and policy.

Andrew Lowe is Professor of Plant Conservation Biology and Director of the Australian Centre for Evolutionary Biology and Biodiversity at the University of Adelaide, Head of Science for the South Australian Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources, and Associate Science Director of TERN. His predominant research interest is: ‘How do plants survive and adapt to anthropomorphised landscapes?’ Andrew is passionate about communicating science, particularly the threats and solutions to biodiversity pressures, and in addition to a broad range of popular articles has published over 150 journal articles and book chapters.
