[ 17-21 November 2014 - Nouméa, New Caledonia ]
Society for Ecological Restoration Australasia (SERA) meetings aim to provide an essential international forum for scientists and practitioners who look to restoration as a means to conserve the planet's dwindling biodiversity and failing ecosystems. These meetings provide a critical platform to assist us in defining the principles of restoration, understanding goals and milestones, debating what ecosystem functions to measure and closing the gap between the science of restoration ecology and the practice of ecological restoration.
Goal of the conference in New Caledonia
This conference aims to bring together land managers, scientists and practitioners who work in biodiversity restoration at a time of significance for the region's species, ecosystems and landscapes with a focus on restoration of degraded sites, in particular in island regions.
Topics that are relevant, of high focus and contemporary in Australasia, will be highlighted during the conference program. Papers will be sought from both researchers and practitioners engaged in restoration across Australasia.
The meeting will host an array of themes representing current research and global restoration practice concepts. Themes that are relevant, of high focus and contemporary in Australasia will be part of the SER Australasia 2014 conference program.
