Call for Abstracts

You are invited to submit an abstract for the joint conference of the Society for Ecological Restoration Australasia (SERA) and the New Zealand Ecological Society (NZES), which is being held in Hamilton New Zealand from 19  23 November 2016.

The theme is Restoring resilience across all environments. The conference headline signifies our aspirational goal to restore resilience to all environments (land and sea, urban and rural), upscaling efforts from local to regional and national scales.

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. There will be a focus on linking practice with research and will therefore be offering a discounted one-day registration and an accessible Sunday start (November 20th).

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

A full description of the themes and submission instructions can be found on the conference website here.<>

Abstract submission deadline is 1 August 2016.
