NERP Tropical Ecosystems Hub
Welcome to the National Environmental Research Program
Tropical Ecosystems Hub (NERP TE Hub)
The Tropical Ecosystems Hub is the largest of the five NERP Hubs with 240 scientists from five major research institutions undertaking 38 projects across North and Far North Queensland and the Torres Strait.
Researchers are addressing critical issues for management, conservation and sustainable use of the World Heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef and its catchments, tropical rainforests including the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area, and land and sea assets on which the resilient communities in the Torres Strait depend.
The TE Hub also undertakes a dedicated knowledge brokering and communication and engagement program to ensure information is delivered to the right people in the right way through research-user engagement and our suite of communication products and reporting tools.
This website is the main source for news and information from the TE Hub and also links to the e-Atlas, a TE Hub funded website dedicated to presenting research data in an accessible form.
