Biodiversity and Environmental Change describes changes in a range of Australian ecosystems that have been subject

identify the drivers of change and provide the evidence and knowledge needed to better inform natural resource
management in Australia.
This Policy Handbook describes the key findings and messages from long-term ecological research for policy makers and the
general public. The Policy Handbook can be downloaded from the LTERN website.
