TERN Annual Symposia and the ACEAS Great Debate PDF Print E-mail
Written by Alison Specht   


The 2012 annual TERN Symposium "Leading by Example: research and management impacts of shared ecosystem data" was held in Adelaide at the National Wine Centre on the 28 and 29 March.

For ACEAS the week began with the Grand ACEAS Workshop on March 26, at which members of several ACEAS groups met together and compared notes around the themes of Extinction and Landscape Transformation. Corey Bradshaw led the group in preparing a 29-author paper titled 'Brave new green world - the costs and benefits of a carbon economy for the conservation of Australian biodiversity'. We wait eagerly for publication news.


This was followed by the Great ACEAS debate at the Royal Institution of Australia on the controversial topic 'Will European land-use devastate Australia's unique biodiversity?'

This debate can be viewed here, and it continues to delight!
