Information pack – Biodiversity

This information pack contains a list of freely accessible relevant resources that you can access directly online, followed by a list of hard copy and paywalled publications that can be requested from the AWRI library free of charge.

For access to a more extensive collection of resources, Australian grapegrowers and winemakers can also search the AWRI library database.
