2014 Research Highlights

Hub Publication

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

In 2011, the Landscapes and Policy Hub set out to answer the question ‘What would a whole of landscape approach to biodiversity conservation look like?’ Focusing on the two case study areas of the Tasmanian Midlands and the Australian Alps, we are developing tools, techniques and policy options to support landscape-scale biodiversity planning.

In 2012, we formed a strategic partnership with the Australian Alps Liaison Committee to align our research with the operational needs of alps managers. Almost two years on, we are seeing the fruits of our efforts, with several practical and operational tools under development in collaboration with alps managers. In April 2014, we presented this research to the IUCN/AALC Alps Science Management Forum. This snapshot provides an overview of these tools as well as our research in our other major case study area, the Tasmanian Midlands.
