Abstract: The Australian rangelands cover around 80% of the continent yet, from a biodiversity perspective, probably constitutes the most understudied part. To further the understanding of these ecosystems and progress analytical and predictive modelling, the Terrestrial Ecosystem Research Network (TERN) through a collaboration between Adelaide University and the SA Department of Environment and Natural Resources, is in the initial stages of a process to establish a National Scientific Reference Site Network (NSRSN) across the rangelands. This paper describes the TERN setup.
