It gives us great pleasure to invite you to the joint conference of the Society for Ecological Restoration Australasia (SERA) & the New Zealand Ecological Society (NZES), which is being held in Hamilton from 19 – 23 November 2016.
The name of the conference is Ecology & Restoration, Australasia (ERA2016) and the theme is “Restoring resilience across all environments”. Our conference headline signifies our aspirational goal to restore resilience to all environments (land and sea, urban and rural), upscaling our efforts from local to regional and national scales.
The conference will be structured around the following themes, which are designed to illustrate the broad framework within which we welcome registration of papers, posters or symposium contributions.
- Ecosystem Function
- Marine, Reef and Estuarine Ecosystems
- Freshwater and Floodplains
- Forests and Grasslands
- Restoration Genetics
- Mining Restoration
- Species Focus
- Invasive and Pest Species Management
- Indigenous Restoration and Co-Management
- Working Outside the Box
- Society and Politics
- Frameworks, Standards and Planning
- Methods and Technologies
This conference promises to be an unforgettable event that will bring together over 500 delegates who represent all levels of government, universities, students, researchers, contractors, suppliers, volunteers and consultants. A unique feature of ERA2016 is a day of presentations targeted at restoration practitioners and community volunteers. We are focused on linking practice with research and will therefore be offering a discounted one-day registration and an accessible Sunday start (November 20th).
We are looking forward to welcoming you to Hamilton in November.
On behalf of the organising committee,
