Adaptive variation of native biota - Associate Professor Tammy Steeves, University of Canterbury

This project spans both natural and primary production sectors, with a focus on increasing the resilience of both threatened taonga and mahinga kai species to improve conservation, customary and commercial outcomes. The project takes a genomic approach to adaptive resilience, and is developing a framework by which communities in Aotearoa New Zealand can work together to ensure threatened species are more resilient to future environmental change.
