This project will help us manage and protect the biodiversity of the Wet Tropics by increasing our understanding of the past, present and future patterns and drivers of rainforest biodiversity. The research will increase our baseline data and knowledge while increasing our understanding of the vulnerability of our tropical forests to climate change. The project’s objective is to provide knowledge that will inform evidence-based policy and management of biodiversity within the region and nationally.

The project consists of four subprojects that will each address high priority research needs:

• Monitoring

• Climate change vulnerability and adaptation

• Determinants of biodiversity

• Status, trends and future predictions
