Discovering biodiversity: a decadal plan for taxonomy and biosystematics in Australia and New Zealand 2018–2027

27 Apr 2018
Description

Our understanding of life on Earth is limited. Best estimates suggest that a majority of Australian and New Zealand species remain undiscovered, unnamed and undocumented. 

Taxonomy and biosystematics—the disciplines of biology that study, document, name and characterise biodiversity—provide the framework for this much-needed understanding of life on our planet.

This decadal plan seeks to use new and emerging technologies, develop key infrastructure, and create a unified and dynamic science that will serve the needs of society, government, industry and our unique biodiversity.
