What is Biodiscovery ?: 

What is Biodiscovery ?

Where are we now? : 

Where are we now? Facilitating access Fire ants Anti-cancer sponges We can do better!

Slide5: 

Biodiscovery

World-beating biodiversity: 

World-beating biodiversity 80% of Australian species are found here, and nowhere else Australia is more biodiverse than 98% of other countries

Slide7: 

Australia’s marine biodiversity amongst the most abundant and diverse on earth

Unlocking the Knowledge: 

Unlocking the Knowledge We know only one in four species in Australia 1gm of soil has >1million bacterial species!

Slide9: 

Unlocking the Knowledge The key … Atlas of Living Australia All known Australian plant & animal species named by 2015 – a Biodiversity Google

Slide10: 

Australia is losing species faster than they are being found. Unlocking the Knowledge Protecting our Biodiversity Resource

Slide11: 

Unlocking the Knowledge Indigenous & Traditional Knowlege

Slide16: 

Challenges … what challenges? … but integration of collections is piecemeal. … but access & benefit rules are unclear or inconsistent.. ... but we lack a sense of urgency in the struggle to bridge the chasm. and those of our competitors are not. Taxonomists are an endangered species. Solution Atlas of Living Australia by 2015 Solution National Screening Network Solution Harmonised national access & benefit-sharing legislation

Slide17: 

Challenges Bridging the Chasm
