A new CSIRO report on the National Reserve System shows that even as soon as 2030 climate change will have had a significant impact on biodiversity. Lead author for the report titled the "Implications of climate change for biodiversity conservation and the National Reserve System", is CSIRO's Dr Michael Dunlop. It’s expected that many environments will completely disappear or be replaced by ones that are not found currently on the continent at all. Dunlop goes on to discuss who will benefit overall, native or alien species, and Dunlop states it depends, some will benefit and some will have a harder time adapting.
