Environmental Decision Support Systems
Optimum Management of Ecosystems
Australian ecosystems have developed a 'boom and bust' approach to recruitment, adapting to the highly variable cycles of flood and drought. The introduction of urban and agricultural development to our landscapes has led to significant problems which undermine the sustainability of ecosystem services. Managing this conflict is critical because the long term success of the economy is increasingly dependent on the provision of services from the environment such as basic food supplies, clean water, detoxification and fresh air.
The Landscape Futures Program is conducting research which leads to recommendations for optimum management of ecosystems and critical ecosystem services.
Research projects are listed below.
