Nikki Thurgate_The Multi-Scale Plot Network (MSPN): a network within a network, delivering integrated data to address policy and management needs

  1. 1. The Multi-Scale Plot NetworkA network within a network, delivering integrateddata to address policy and management needsPresentation by Nikki Thurgate
  2. 2. Facility ObjectiveWe provide co-ordination to help integrate datafrom multiple sources and scales to provide acomprehensive understanding of Australianecosystems and how they are changingThis is a collaborative approach and requiresopen, engaged and willing participants
  3. 3. Networks, within networks
  4. 4. Infrastructure- Networks of Ecosystem Scientists
  5. 5. Infrastructure- Across Scales
  6. 6. Infrastructure- Plots and Data
  7. 7. Collaborative Infrastructure, an exampleSouth West AustralianTransitional Transect•Straddles AusPlotsRangelands and Forests•Using and enhancingnational methods•Traverses the GreatWestern WoodlandsSuperSite
  8. 8. Policy and management•Provides data on poorly known regions whichare of direct benefit to the jurisdiction•TERN is partnering with two WA agencies toensure this program meets their needs•The approach is mirrored across all of MSPN
  9. 9. Network OutputsSeries of workshops that assisted with • Documenting existing research infrastructure • Exploring spatial and information gaps • Production of a paper • Production of a book (led by ANU-LTERN) • Discussion of methodologies • Discussion of future synthesis
  10. 10. Network Highlights•AusPlots Rangelands and Forests haveestablished hundreds of baseline monitoringplots across Australia and continue to do so•Australian Supersite Network has doubled andnow includes non TERN funded participants•Australian Transect Network is expanding•LTERN lead important scientific projects ofrelevance to policy and management
  11. 11. Network Challenges•Paradigm shifts around the study of biodiversity•Open data access and sharing• Immature citation framework•Technological challenges•Longevity and trust
  12. 12. Why Networks within Networks?“No one person has sufficient knowledge tobuild and fly a Boeing 747 from Singapore toLondon. Nor would one person have all theknowledge and skill to create a sustainableaquaculture industry. We can only achieve theseoutcomes by taking one person’s ideas andthrough collaboration, connection andtrust, adding them to the ideas of many otherpeople”.CSIRO Chief Executive Megan Clark, 2012
