ESA 2016: Look out for us!

esa-2016-logo

This year’s Ecological Society of Australia conference is upon us! Next week will see the annual migration of a flock of qaecologists over to the conference, held this year in Fremantle, WA. There will be presentations & posters on topics ranging from feral predator management, to the impacts of global trade on biodiversity, to validating distribution models, to using drones to find sneaky tree kangaroos!

In addition, Jane Elith will be giving the Keynote address on Tuesday morning, where she will be presented with the Australian Ecology Research Award for 2016. Jane will be giving a talk about the application, challenges and recent progress in using species distribution models with kinds of data that are typically available.

So if you’re heading to ESA, keep an eye out for the following talks & posters from qaeco members throughout the week:
