BioCollect hubs provide a single point of access to projects which share a common theme. This means users don’t have to search through lots of unrelated projects. Hubs can be made for large organisations with many projects, large geographic areas, broad taxonomic groupings, or for a combinations of these.

Interested in your own BioCollect Hub?

To find out more, contact support@ala.org.au .

Below is a sample of some of the existing hubs.

General BioCollect project hubs

Australian Biocontrol Hub

A hub which focuses on biological control projects being run by a consortium of state agriculture agencies. The aim of these projects is to support the recording of populations of a range of biological control agents for numerous declared weed species and potentially other target species too. The hub itself and each project in this hub also contains a lot of useful information about species identification, management, etc. for both target and agent species.

Parks Victoria

Parks Victoria Projects Hub

A hub focused on projects that the Parks Victoria organisation is involved in, some that Parks Victoria is running itself and others in which they are partners.
