We warmly invite you to attend the 2016 Conference of the Ecological Society of Australia

TO BE HELD AT THE ESPLANADE HOTEL FREMANTLE, WESTERN AUSTRALIA, FROM 28 NOVEMBER TO 2 DECEMBER 2016.

The historic port town of Fremantle and its warm Mediterranean-type climate provide a perfect setting for meeting colleagues outdoors and engaging in lively discussions of diversity patterns, process and prospects. The town’s 2020 vision to improve habitat for local biodiversity and for people under a drying climate can be seen in the landscaped gardens and verge plantings. Delegates will also have the opportunity to explore the nearby Maritime Museum and internationally renowned Shipwreck Galleries. ESA16 will feature symposia on regionally relevant issues, including indigenous ecological knowledge, urban ecology, restoration ecology, refugia in ancient landscapes, biodiversity conservation, pest and pathogen impacts, and climate change. Fremantle offers easy access to five of the state’s biodiversity hotspots. Two of these hotspots are featured in field trips to the wet southern forests and the northern sand plains.

ESA16 is an opportunity to interact with world-leading ecologists and to experience the unrivalled biodiversity hotspot of south-western Australia.

We look forward to seeing you in Fremantle!
