TERN is providing access to a wealth of Australian ecosystem data, and enabling broad participation of researchers in data publication. Some of the ecosystem data now available through TERN’s infrastructure includes species lists from more than 100,000 plots, high resolution maps of soil and remote-sensed data, and estimates of GPP and transpiration from vegetation.  TERN also offers tools and repositories for managing your own data. This masterclass will give an overview of the new ecosystem data resources available, how you can access it, and how you can take advantage of new tools and infrastructure to benefit your research and data management.
