We sincerely thank all those who have been part of this in allowing us the opportunity to work and engage with you throughout the process, especially NRM practitioners, cluster researchers and federal and state government stakeholders.
First and foremost, we would like to express our gratitude to our collaborators, the NRM practitioners who have helped us in developing and refining content in these modules, as well as influencing the design of our approach.
The project team would also like to thank our peer reviewers for all our guides. Specifically,
- Dr Robert Webb of the Climate Change Institute at the Australian National University, and Dr Craig James of CSIRO’s then Climate Adaptation Flagship for providing critical scientific review and commentary to The NRM Adaptation Checklist.
- Dr Tony Grice for his critical scientific review of Weeds and Climate Change.
- Drs Helen Murphy and Phil Pisanu for their critical scientific review Implications of Climate Change for Biodiversity.
- Drs Helen Murphy, Justin Perry and Phil Pisanu for their critical scientific review of Helping Biodiversity Adapt.
Our heartfelt thanks to Mr Paul Kotz and Mr Alex Mustakov of Small Studio for their innovation and creativity that has led to the beautiful products of this project. Our appreciation also goes to Mr Chris Gerbing, Mr Chris Johnson, for creative and strategic communication advice for this project. We also want to acknowledge the contributions of Natalie Raisbeck-Brown for designing and customising the map posters for both Implications of Climate Change for Biodiversity, and Helping Biodiversity Adapt. We specifically would like to thank those who have contributed images to our project, and have made an effort to ensure that each one is credited appropriately.
For their roles in producing, coordinating, and making available the CMIP5 model output, we acknowledge the MIROC5 and CAN-ESM2 climate modelling groups, the World Climate Research Programme’s (WCRP) Working Group on Coupled Modelling (WGCM), and the Global Organization for Earth System Science Portals (GO-ESSP).
