Increasingly, societies are dealing with environmental degradation, climatic variability and loss of biodiversity. Effective restoration and conservation relies on detailed data and models of human, geological and ecological landscapes over time, knowledge of basic evolutionary and economic principles, and direct communication between scientists, policymakers and the public.

Our world-renowned researchers convert foundational scientific knowledge into strategic solutions for global environmental problems.

UQ Science supports more than 220 biologists, molecular biologists, ecologists, geologists, geographers, urban planners, sociologists and environmental scientists working in this cross-disciplinary research theme.
