The Centre for Biodiveristy Analysis has built a large, interactive research community across ~60 ANU and CSIRO labs in its first five years (2012-17). In 2018 the University of Canberra (UC) joined the CBA.

Lab leaders and research scientists from ANU, CSIRO, and U Canberra represent a range of disiplines relevant to the CBA's core focus of incorporating evolutionary biology, population and ecosystem ecology, genomics, bioinformatics and spatial modelling into understanding Australia’s biodiversity and its protection:
    • National Research Collections Australia (NRCA), Facilities and Collections (Canberra, Townsville and Hobart)
    • Environomics Future Science Platform
    • Health & Biosecurity
    • Land and Water
    • Agriculture
  • ANU
    • Ecology and Evolution (E&E) and Plant Science (PS) in the Research School of Biology (RSB)
    • Fenner School of Environment and Society (FSES)
    • Department of Archaeology and Natural History (ANH)
    • Centre for Aboriginal Economic Policy Research (CAEPR)
  • University of Canberra
    • Centre for Conservation Ecology and Genetics

Post docs and students are considered part of the CBA via their lab group's membership and can be included on our Early Career Researcher (ECR) Register here.

Using its resources, expertise and collaborations the CBA supports and coordinates a range of activities:


Publications from CBA project funding


New funding and collaborations


Outreach and knowledge exchange
