Victorian teacher Nick Shaw’s images of unusual underwater creatures with beautiful colouring quickly caught our eye.
Rangers from the Central Land Council (CLC) now have the capacity to track threatened species in both English and Warlpiri as part of a comprehensive data collection, storage and management system supported by the Atlas of Living Australia (ALA).
Trevor Booth uses the ALA to study where particular tree species can grow in Australia and overseas, under both current and future climatic conditions. In this article, Trevor describes some of his work and provides some useful tips for anyone using the ALA’s mapping and analysis features to study plant or animal distributions.
Former teacher and CSIRO’s Indigenous STEM Program Coordinator Geoff Guymer has a wealth of experience teaching in classrooms across Australia and loves using the ALA.
