2013 Research Highlights

Hub Publication

The annual research highlights publication focuses on various research achievements of the Landscapes and Policy Research Hub.

In 2012, the hub reached its full complement of 36 researchers, working closely with the Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities, and collaborating with staff from environment agencies in four states (NSW, Vic, Tas and ACT). In developing new approaches to biodiversity conservation, the hub is testing concepts in three case study regions: the Tasmanian Midlands, the Australian Alps and the Lower Hunter Region (NSW).
