We will be joined by the National Wetlands Trust, Australian Freshwater Sciences Society, International Congress of Ecologists (INTECOL) and many other wetland enthusiasts from around the world. This will provide us an opportunity to met with colleagues across many disciplines and present our research to a wider audience.
