The Terrestrial Biodiversity Adaptation Research Network is hosted by James Cook University.

This Network is led by Professor Stephen Williams, Director of James Cook University's The Centre for Tropical Biodiversity and Climate Change, and Professor Lesley Hughes, who is a member of the Climate Futures group at Macquarie University.

The primary goal of this network will be to develop explicit and practical strategies that increase the resilence of terrestrial ecosystems and maximise their adaptive potential under climate change. The research priorities of this network will be to collate knowledge, co-ordinate expertise and synthesise these inputs into recommendations and frameworks that will guide the way forward for Australia to adapt to global climate change.

The philosophy of the network is to have a truly national focus, and thus to distribute both activities and funding opportunities across all states and territories, and amongst as broad a range of researchers, institutions, and stakeholder organisations as possible. We welcome suggestions from all members as to how we can best serve their research and collaboration needs.
