Sharing & Sustaining Ecosystem Data

  1. 1. Sharing & Sustaining Ecosystem Data Professors Stuart Phinn and Andrew Lowe TERN - Associate Science DirectorsTERN Office: T. Clancy, A. Specht., E. Cuffe, C. Lange, B. Morris, M. Widdowson, Y. Li.,S. Guru, S.Long, R, Christensen and P. Runting
  2. 2. International Partners TERN is supported by the Australian Government through the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy and the Super Science Initiative
  3. 3. Presentation Aims To demonstrate how TERN is used to enable:- improved use and re-use of data;- improved collaboration to address key questions;- greater collective influence on ecosystem science and management in Australia.
