CSIRO Centre for Arid Zone Research

CSIRO’s lab in Alice Springs focuses on eco research about natural resource management and sustainable livelihoods in arid and semi-arid rangelands.

Alice Springs lab has been around since 1953 and has moved to its current location within the Desert Knowledge Precinct in 2009.

This gives a better base for scientists engaged in research on ecology, natural resource management and socio-economic systems in arid and semi-arid rangelands, environments which constitute more than 70 per cent of the Australian continent.

The research scope has expanded in the ensuing years to areas such as:

• pastoral production

• conservation management

• tourism

• mining

• Aboriginal livelihoods
