The CBA is in a unique location with world-class biological research facilities based in Canberra at the ANU, University of Canberra and CSIRO Black Mountain laboratories, and the other national CSIRO collections outside Canberra.
Acknowledgement of Country
We acknowledge, celebrate and pay our respects to the Ngunnawal and Ngambri people of the Canberra region and to all First Nations Australians on whose traditional lands we meet and work, and whose cultures are among the oldest continuing cultures in human history.
The Centre for Biodiversity Analysis
The CBA is funded by the Australian National University (Research School of Biology, Fenner School of Environment and Society, College of Science & DVCR), CSIRO (National Research Collections Australia and Health & Biosecurity), and the University of Canberra (Centre for Conservation Ecology and Genetics). The Centre is administered from the Research School of Biology, ANU (see General contact).
Canberra is Australia’s capital city with a population of ~400,000. It is 150km from Australia's east coast with an elevation of ~580m. The city's design incorporates significant areas of remnant native vegetation (grassland and woodland) that has earned Canberra the title 'the bush capital'.
