NZFSS 2013: Abstracts and registrations are now open…
Joint conference for New Zealand Freshwater Sciences Society, New Zealand Marine Sciences Society and the Australian Society for Fish Biology
19-23 August 2013
Hamilton, New Zealand
‘aquatic science at the interface’
About the Conference:
Much of our work is carried out within fixed boundaries defined by ecosystem type, species, geography, culture or discipline. Important advances in knowledge are frequently made through the cross-fertilisation of ideas at the interface of these boundaries, whether they are across disciplines, biotic groups or ecosystems, or through the interaction of science with social, cultural and economic perspectives. This conference will augment a traditional programme of sessions by linking fundamental and applied aquatic sciences at the interface of land-water, riverine-estuarine and coastal-marine realms, between food webs, biotic groups and ecosystem processes, and across multidisciplinary groups integrating environmental science, social science, economics and traditional knowledge.
Highlights of the Conference:
• International and local plenary speakers include, Rod Connolly from Griffith University, Queensland, Lindsay Chadderton from The Nature Conservancy, Great Lakes region, USA and Dr Clive Howard-Williams NIWA, New Zealand.
• A range of special sessions has been organised on topical issues. Registrants can nominate their oral paper to be considered for a special session on the abstract submission page
• Field Trips include, Lower Waikato River, Lakes and Floodplain fisheries, Bird watching at Miranda, Rotorua - Lake restoration, Whatawhata – Application of science at land-water interface and Taupo/Tongariro trout management
• A number of social functions have been planned, for further information please click here
