Movie: What can museum collections tell us about climate change

Collections are made, maintained and developed with a view to documenting biological diversity over time but how do researchers use these collections to understand the complex issue of our changing climate?

In this introduction to the seminar series, Dr Brian Lassig, Head of the Australian Museum Research Institute, outlines the role of museum collections in providing a key resource for those seeking to answer questions about climate change. The talk summarises the current data on climate change and provides the broad context for the more focused videos that follow in this 8 part series.
