Re-Visioning Field Stations, Marine Laboratories, and Research Centers to Address Global Environmental Change Other events...
A public lecture by Dr Peggy Fiedler, Director of the Natural Reserve System at the University of California.

In this lecture Professor Fiedler will provide context for understanding the role of field stations, marine laboratories and other protected areas by discussing specific examples of the UCNRSís research programmes in advancing our general knowledge about the natural world, its general education programs with pre-college students, and its conservation partnerships with a large variety of NGOs, government agencies, and private individuals. Potential new partnerships within the five Mediterranean-ecosystem climate regions worldwide, including the Western Australia, will also be explored.

Peggy Fiedler is a plant conservation biologist, best known for her work on defining the nature of rarity in vascular plants. In the last decade, she has served as a senior research associate at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, and is currently working in a similar capacity with CENRM at The University of Western Australia Albany campus.

Professor Fiedler is a 2014 UWA Institute of Advanced Studies Short Stay Visiting Fellow.
