Displaying from Friday, April 01, 2016
 April 2016
Monday 04
16:00 - SEMINAR - Plant Biology research seminars : Automated high throughput leaf respiration measurements link Arabidopsis night-time respiration rate with mitochondrial substrate supply More Information
Increased ability to predict respiratory fluxes in plants would facilitate better global climate change models, plant carbon budget models and efforts aimed at engineering plant primary metabolism. However, plant respiration has proved difficult to model because of the size and complexity of the (...)
Thursday 07
12:00 - SEMINAR - Bayliss Seminar Series : Investigating a New Family of Small Cyclic Peptides More Information
Friday 08
11:00 - SEMINAR - Modelling Body Mass Index Distribution using Maximum Entropy Density Website | More Information
The objective of this paper is to model the conditional distribution of Body Mass Index (BMI) by examining the relations between a set of covariates and the moments of the BMI distribution. While BMI is often seen as a leading indicators of health, most studies on the distribution of BMI did not (...)
Monday 11
16:00 - SEMINAR - Plant Biology research seminars : Organic phosphorus and microbial driven decomposition in seagrass sediments More Information
Seagrass meadows are often highly productive in oligotrophic waters despite extremely low nutrient concentrations. Seagrass sediments, in contrast, are often enriched in organic matter (OM) that could potentially be a major source of nutrients, particularly of phosphorus (P), following microbial (...)
Tuesday 12
18:00 - PUBLIC TALK - How useful are Bioinoculants? Website | More Information
A public lecture by Miranda Hart, School of Biology, University of British Columbia and 2016 UWA Gledden Visiting Fellow.

The use of bioinoculants (bacteria or fungi) is a common practice in many managed systems. In some cases, this practice is essential and plants will not grow (...)
Thursday 14
12:00 - SEMINAR - Bayliss Seminar Series : Exploring the Secondary Metabolite (SMs) biosynthetic pathways in fungal wheat pathogens More Information
Friday 15
11:00 - SEMINAR - Hot or Not? Chances of Success for the new Pakistani red chilli contract Website | More Information
Last year the Pakistan Mercantile Exchange (PMEX) launched a red chilli futures contract as a way for farmers and other market participants to manage their risks in this volatile commodity which is of such significance for the rural economy of parts of Pakistan. Why did it do so, what will its (...)
Monday 18
12:00 - SEMINAR - Designing Biosecurity Inspection Protocols Accounting for Stakeholder Incentives: Theoretical and Experimental Insights Website | More Information
Government regulators face significant trade-offs in conducting their roles. In Australia, Commonwealth, state and territory governments have been challenging their regulatory agencies to decrease the regulatory burden they impose on compliant stakeholders. However, poorly designed approaches to (...)

12:00 - EVENT - "Plan on a Page" Workshops : Learn about this new tool to help you draft a compelling and comprehensive case to research funders. Website | More Information
UWA encourages its researchers to be proactive and plan early for applications to competitive grant schemes. With the move to continuous rounds of the ARC Linkage program from the 1st July, it is more important than ever to plan ahead! To help you in this regard, the UWA Research Development team (...)

16:00 - SEMINAR - Plant Biology research seminars : Microbial diversity and the relationships between microorganisms and their environment More Information
Dr. Gleeson has been based at the University of Western Australia in the School of Geography and Environmental Sciences since 2004. She completed her PhD and early postdoctoral work at University College Dublin before coming to UWA as a visiting researcher, and subsequently as a research staff (...)
Tuesday 19
8:30 - Short course - Introduction to statistics using Microsoft Excel : The course is open to anyone and is designed for those who have little or no experience with statistics or Microsoft Excel but who would like to learn more. Website | More Information
This course aims to provide you with an introduction to the facilities available in MS Excel from a statistical point of view. As well as an introduction to Excel, spreadsheet functions and graphics, it concentrates on performing basic statistical methods, producing charts and tables, and discusses (...)
Friday 22
12:00 - SEMINAR - Bayliss Seminar Series : Questionable constituents: How to tell what is what in sexual deception More Information
Orchids are well known for their extraordinary species diversity and specialised pollination systems. Several hundred species of orchids are pollinated by the sexual deceit of male bees or wasps through mimicry of insect pheromones. Investigations into the chemical communication between orchids and (...)
Friday 29
11:00 - SEMINAR - A Choice for ‘Me’ or for ‘Us’? Using We-Reasoning to Predict Cooperation and Coordination in Games Website | More Information
Cooperation is the foundation of human social life, but it sometimes requires individuals to choose against their individual self-interest. How then is cooperation sustained? How do we decide when instead to follow our own goals? I develop a model that builds on Bacharach’s (2006) ‘circumspect we-re (...)

Monday 02
16:00 - SEMINAR - Plant Biology research seminars : Tolerance of barley to O2 deficiency: growth responses, internal aeration, and ion uptake by seminal and adventitious roots More Information
Barley is an important cereal crop and is relatively sensitive to waterlogging but some variation in tolerance has been observed. There are, however, gaps in knowledge of the effects of waterlogging on the uptake of nutrients by seminal and adventitious roots of barley, and of how adventitious root (...)
Friday 13
11:00 - SEMINAR - “Protecting the environment: privately” Website | More Information
Much of the economics literature takes the environment to be a public good and hence writes out a role for the private sector as a source of supply. Yet there is ample evidence of the private sector being involved, driven both by profit and altruism. In this talk, Jeff will try to convince you of (...)
Friday 20
10:00 - EVENT - New techniques in X-ray Diffraction SAXS and X-Ray Spectrometry More Information
X-ray Diffraction is a very useful technique for characterisation of various materials in different ways. With the recent advancement in hardware and software technology, high end X-ray Diffraction and X-ray Scattering experiments usually done on Synchrotron can be performed at lab scale even (...)

11:00 - SEMINAR - Using Conservation Auctions: The Auctioneers Experience Website | More Information
Conservation auctions have been in use in natural resource management for a little more than 10 years and Australia has been a pioneer in their design and implementation. Conservation auctions seek to efficiently distribute incentives for natural resource management to overcome market failures in (...)
Monday 23
16:00 - SEMINAR - Plant Biology research seminars : Predator ecology in the arid rangelands of Western Australia: Spatial interactions and resource competition between an apex predator, the dingo Canis dingo, and an introduced mesopredator, the feral cat Felis catus More Information
Apex predators may suppress smaller ‘mesopredators’ through direct antagonistic interactions or through indirect competition for resources. These interactions may result in a reduction in mesopredator abundance or changes in their behaviour causing them to avoid apex predators. In Australia, the (...)

 June 2016
Friday 03
11:00 - SEMINAR - Impact of different water allocation strategies to manage groundwater resources in Western Australia: equity and efficiency considerations Website | More Information
In many parts of the world groundwater is depleting at an alarming rate. Water regulation authorities are facing the challenge of reducing groundwater extraction by existing users. However, to take appropriate adaptation measures it is necessary to understand the distributional consequences of (...)
Wednesday 08
13:00 - PUBLIC LECTURE - Postgraduate Showcase: Frontiers in Agriculture : Listen to some of UWA's top postgraduate students present the exciting highlights of their research in agriculture and related areas Website | More Information
All are welcome to attend the annual Postgraduate Showcase: Frontiers in Agriculture.
