The Node supporting over 20 post-graduate students since 2009. Support occurs in the form of funding, access to office and laboratory space, access to research sites, and assistance with data collection in the field. In turn students contribute to the development of long-term research by collecting data on variables relevant to the Node's scientific objective, and provide a copy of their data for the SAEON archive.
