Our teams are aiming to quantify social-ecological linkages for use in managing, protecting and restoring land and water ecosystems.
Our vision is that:
- Native biodiversity and ecological function will improve across natural, urban and production landscapes, through enhanced connectivity and function among taxa, habitats and ecosystems.
- We understand and can measure a range of dynamic and complex responses to management interventions, and will be able to predict potential trajectories, in social-ecological systems.
- People will be re-connecting to their local environments, and we will be quantifying linkages between human and environmental health.
- Interdependencies among land and water domains will be recognised in order to support integrated ecosystem management.
