The Institute for Applied Ecology undertakes world class research to improve our understanding of the environment, and enhance decision-making for natural resource management and sustainable development.
Our water science team aims to increase our understanding of freshwater systems to better inform management and policy decisions
We study the fundamental ecology of Australia's freshwater systems and apply this knowledge to environmental problems. Increasingly our researchers work in partnerships across disciplines, research organisations and agencies to generate integrated solutions to water science challenges
The core purpose of the Institute for Applied Ecology is to undertake high quality research which improves our understanding of the environment to enhance decision making in natural resource management and sustainable development.
Our researchers undertake science that enhances our understanding of the natural world. Discover the wide array of research undertaken from molecular to ecosystem science in the fields of conservation ecology, ecochemistry and toxicology, genetics and genomics and water science.
