Taxonomy Australia

A sound understanding of our biodiversity is critical, particularly as we seek to achieve environmental and economic sustainability in the face of rapid global change. And yet around 70% of our species remain undiscovered, unnamed and undocumented. Taxonomy Australia aims to:​

  • increase the profile and understanding of taxonomy and biosystematics in the community and with government and industry
  • help bring about a greatly accelerated discovery and documentation of Australia's undiscovered species
  • implement the recommendations of the decadal plan for taxonomy and biosystematics.

UNCOVER

UNCOVER is a major collaborative initiative to focus Australia's relevant geoscience effort on providing the knowledge base and technology that will substantially increase the success rate of mineral exploration in Australia.
