Living with . . . living without weeds

Invasive species management is high on the agenda of a workshop being conducted through the Australian Centre for Cultural Environmental Research (AUSCCER).

The workshop being held over 19 and 20 February at the Novotel Northbeach is entitled ‘Living with, living without weeds: bridging theory and practice’.

Two ARC Australian Laureate Fellows Professor Lesley Head (AUSCCER, University of Wollongong) and Professor Richard Hobbs (School of Plant Biology, University of Western Australia) have joined an impressive line-up of speakers which also includes a keynote address from Dr Brendon Larson from the University of Waterloo in Canada.

Speakers are focusing on novel ecosystems and invasive species management.

There is a diverse group of researchers and practitioners participating who are studying and managing invasive plants from across Australia – with representatives also from the Illawarra region.

Topics under discussion include: ‘Invasion and management of weeds in Australia: emergent ecological knowledge and future research needs’; ‘ Making Healthy Country: culturally-based approaches to weed management in Indigenous Protected Areas in the Kimberley region; and ‘Spaces, scale and bodies in invasive plant management’.
