Submission to Inquiry into Australia’s biodiversity in a changing climate – Aug 2011

Resources |

There are major deficiencies in current invasive species policies and programs that will inevitably result in further declines in biodiversity, which are likely to accelerate under climate change.

A much stronger focus on environmental biosecurity should be a top priority strategy for climate change adaptation.

We discuss and exemplify four types of interactions between climate change and invasive species: abiotic, biotic, anthrophogenic and carbon balance. Submission to inquiry by the House of Representative Standing Committee on Climate Change, Enviornment and the Arts.
