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.

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 (...)

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.

The Postgraduate Showcase brings together some of UWA’s best PhD students at an advanced stage of their research. It highlights relevant research and progress being made in the area of Agriculture and (...)

18:00 - EVENT - Fresh Science Pub Night : Drinks, food, fireworks and science. Come and watch as WA's fresh, young scientists present their work at a pub event with a difference. Website | More Information
Drinks, food, fireworks and science. Come and watch as our fresh, young scientists present their work at a pub event with a difference.

The ten young scientists will describe their scientific discoveries in the time it takes a party sparkler to burn out.

One hundred early-caree (...)
Monday 13
16:00 - SEMINAR - Biodiversity, Biosecurity and Management of Fouling Assemblages in Western Australia : Plant Biology research seminars More Information
Biological invasions are emerging as one of the greatest threats to coastal ecosystems worldwide. Increases in international shipping as well as other anthropogenic vectors have escalated the extent and frequency of species transfer around the world and coastal hardening through ports and other (...)
Tuesday 14
17:00 - PUBLIC LECTURE - Addressing food security in Timor Leste : All are welcome to attend a public lecture on how Western Australian researchers have help improve food security in Timor Leste More Information
Timor-Leste is a small, tropical, mountainous country with a population of 1.1 milion. Its people are hungry. Timor-Leste was ranked the fourth lowest country in in the 2015 Global Hunger Index. It is one of only three countries where over 50% of children under the age of five are stunted due to (...)
Monday 20
16:05 - EVENT - Black spot disease complex in field pea - pathogens involved and interactions with host resistance : Plant Biology research seminars More Information
Pea black spot is the most devastating disease in field pea. The disease is caused by a complex of pathogens including Didymella pinodes, Phoma pinodella, Ascochyta pisi, and other fungi recently found to be associated with black spot. Findings of my PhD have provided, for the first time, the (...)
Monday 27
16:00 - SEMINAR - Effects of marine reserves on herbivore and their functional role on temperate reefs : School of Plant Biology Research Seminar More Information
A key objective of marine reserves is to maintain ecological processes essential to the functioning of marine ecosystems. Grazing by tropical herbivores contributes to maintaining resilient coral reefs and marine reserves are critical in conserving herbivores and the functional role they provide (...)

Monday 04
16:00 - SEMINAR - Plant Biology Research Seminar : Australian Herbicide Resistance Initiative (AHRI) Overview More Information
AHRI members conduct research and extension to encourage sustainable cropping and weed control across Australia. Research activities include the biology and population ecology of major crop weed species through to cultural and herbicide management strategies and fundamental research on biochemical (...)
Friday 08
10:00 - WORKSHOP - How can CERI help researchers develop an entrepreneurial mindset? : Discover what the Centre for Entrepreneurial Research and Innovation has to offer UWA researchers Website | More Information
This workshop will outline how CERI can help researchers develop entrepreneurial skills and assist them through the innovation process. CERI is a not-for-profit organisation based in Nedlands.
Monday 11
16:00 - SEMINAR - Plant Biology Research Seminar : Understanding the bioactivity of the forage legume Biserrula pelecinus L. - variability and mechanisms More Information
Agriculture in particular ruminant livestock, is a major anthropogenic source of potent greenhouse gas, methane, where abundant gas is produced and expelled into the environment during fermentation of food in the animal gut. Annual forage legume Biserrula pelecinus L. (biserrula) act as an (...)
Tuesday 12
14:00 - Short course - ANOVA, Linear regression and Logistic Regression : The course is designed for people with knowledge of basic statistics who want to learn more about regression and analysis of variance (ANOVA). Website | More Information
This course covers techniques that can be used to analyse data with continuous and categorical variables. The course will begin with simple linear regression and then proceed with approaches that can be used with more than two variables such as multiple regression. ANOVA with interactions and (...)
Tuesday 26
16:00 - SEMINAR - Plant Biology Research Seminar : Sterol Interference: Modifying plant sterol metabolism to control insect pests More Information
New approaches are required to control insect pests which cause $2 billion annual crop losses in Australia alone. Phytophagous insects are incapable of synthesizing cholesterol which is an essential molecule for many important biological functions. They rely on converting host phytosterols to (...)

18:00 - PUBLIC TALK - Evolution at the End of the World - stories of plant resilience in the southwest Australian biodiversity hotspot Website | More Information
The 2016 George Seddon Memorial Lecture by Professor Kingsley Dixon, Director, ARC Centre for Mine Restoration, Department of Environment and Agriculture, Curtin University.
