The ALA is engaged in an exciting new EcoCloud project aimed at providing new data and modelling capability to support ecological research and management. The ALA will be working with nine other organisations to collate, integrate and give access to ecological data then develop and train people in the use of modelling and analysis tools to provide dynamic essential environmental measures and facilitate new insights into ecosystems. ALA will be focussed on providing access to collated species trait data, with an emphasis on traits of invasive species. It is expected this will assist researchers and natural resource managers to predict and prepare for the spread of these species nationally and internationally.
Collaborators in this project are:
