Printer-friendly version
11 Dec 2017 (All day)
The Linnean Society of New South Wales will host a 2-day Symposium on Australian Alpine Ecosystems, followed by a 1-day field trip to Yarrangobilly Caves, Kosciuszko National Park.
The symposium will appeal to scientists, land managers and the general public. The scope of the symposium encompasses alpine and subalpine ecosystems across NSW, the ACT, VIC and TAS.
The venue for the Symposium will be the Jindabyne cinema theatre, Snowy Region Visitors Centre, Kosciuszko Road Jindabyne.

Alpine ecosystems are among Australia’s most remarkable, covering less than 1% of its land mass, and home to highly distinctive flora, fauna and landscapes with a long history and climatically varied since Tertiary uplift. Today, alpine ecosystems confront new pressures associated with human land use, invasions of alien plants, animals and diseases, altered bushfire regimes, recreational activities, and anthropogenic climate change. Maintaining Australia’s alpine flora, fauna and landscapes under such pressures requires a cooperative effort.
This symposium aims to bring together new contributions on alpine environments across multiple disciplines:
  • Evolution and systematics
  • Plant and animal ecology
  • Geology and geomorphology
  • Hydrology
  • Fire and Invasion ecology
  • Biogeography and paleo-history
  • Climatology and climate change
  • Biodiversity and geodiversity conservation
  • Restoration ecology
  • Cultural heritage and history
