SERA is dedicated to providing education, specialised training, and networking opportunities for ecological and environmental professionals working together to meet the challenges of ecosystem restoration. SERA provides an interactive forum for physical, biological, and social scientists, engineers, resource managers, planners, and policy makers to share their experiences and research results concerning large-scale ecosystem restoration on both national and international levels.
Who Should Attend?
SERA is a collaborative effort. If you are a scientist, practitioner, manager, or policy maker and are actively involved in and/or affected by all aspects of ecosystem restoration, you do not want to miss this conference! Individuals interested in restoration planning and management activities such as setting goals, objectives, and performance standards by which to measure success should be sure to attend.
Each session is 90-minutes long with a 15-minute introduction, followed by five 15-minute talks forming a cohesive theme.
The University of Queensland (UQ) is a research university primarily located in Queensland's capital city, Brisbane. As one of Australia's leading universities, UQ is consistently ranked first for business administration, mining engineering and life sciences in Australasia and it's top ten in global ranking for environmental sciences and ecology. UQ also admits the majority of its state's top achievers. The main campus occupies much of the riverside inner suburb of St Lucia, southwest of the Brisbane central business district.
Founded in 1909 by the state parliament, UQ is one of Australia's oldest universities colloquially known as a sandstone university.
