Naturalness arguments for weak-scale supersymmetry favour supersymmetric partners of the third generation quarks, Higgs and electroweak gauge bosons with masses not too far from those of their Standard Model counterparts. Under this paradigm, also the gluino mass would not exceed 1-2 TeV. Real and virtual production of third generation squarks via decay of a gluino can therefore be significant. Top and bottom squarks as well as charginos, neutralinos and sleptons with masses well below the TeV scale can also give rise to observable direct pair production rates at the LHC. The seminar will present results from searches for natural supersymmetry, many using the full data sample recorded during the 2012 run at 8 TeV centre-of-mass energy by the ATLAS detector.
