Australia's Marine Biodiversity and Resources in a Changing Climate - a review of impacts and adaptation 2009-2012
This document provides a critical review and synthesis of the published literature since December 2008 relevant to climate change adaptation for Australia’s marine biodiversity and resources, and identifies relevant funded projects and some key existing knowledge gaps. The literature review reports against research questions identified in the National Climate Change Adaptation Research Plan for Marine Biodiversity and Resources as possible priorities over the subsequent 5–7 years from 2010–2016. Based largely on the published literature since December 2008 and projects underway, we identify some key knowledge gaps that remain, and identify another question area that might be usefully added to the ‘cross-cutting issues’ theme – consideration of estuaries – not explicitly included in the original research plan.
