Climate change and its impacts on wildlife are increasingly viewed as an acute area of concern for a wide range of stakeholder groups.

Flinders Research Centre for Climate Adaptation and Animal Behaviour (FRC CAAB) is a cross-disciplinary research centre of Flinders University that focuses on measuring and identifying the adaptive capacity of organisms to climate in a changing environment.

The Centre brings together more than 30 academic staff from the School of the Environment and School of Biological Sciences with demonstrable high-quality research expertise in all aspects of animal behaviour, land use, and evolutionary ecology (that is, the study of adaptation in different environments).

This broad multi-disciplinary capability will provide new research-based knowledge about responses of organisms to environmental change in both terrestrial and marine environments in South Australia and elsewhere.
