Australian Mountain Research Facility (AMRF, ARC LIEF project)

Description

Australia's iconic high mountains provide critical water supply, clean energy, unique biodiversity, recreation and education opportunities. They face an ecological crisis from climate and land use change. The Australian Mountain Environmental Research Facility is a collaboration across universities and land management agencies that will bring together leading institutions and researchers across 4 jurisdictions to produce world-leading ecosystem, evolutionary and biophysical science to guide adaptive management of High Mountains across Australia. It will support research to assess the extent and effects of changing climate, water and fire regimes on ecosystem processes and their feedbacks and provide a structure for integrated research, management and governance of Australia's mountains.
