The Decadal Plan for Biosystematics and Taxonomy in Australasia is an opportunity to effect a real change in the status, visibility and funding of biosystematics and taxonomy in Australasia.
- document the value of taxonomy and systematics for society, government and industry;
- document current opportunities and risks in the sector;
- provide a forward-looking vision and roadmap for the discipline, including its impacts on and benefits for biodiversity, society and the economy;
- provide a detailed investment plan for the next decade; and
- initiate steps toward implementing the plan through engagement with the sector and its stakeholders.
Decadal Plans have been developed for a number of sectors in Australian science by the Australian Academy of Science - a listing of these can be obtained here.
