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

15:00 - SEMINAR - CMCA Seminar: Why NMR matters in Metabolomics : In principle, NMR is an ideal technique for metabolomics. More Information
In principle, NMR is an ideal technique for metabolomics. It is non-destructive, non-biased, highly quantitative, requires no prior separation, permits the identification of novel compounds and needs no chemical derivatization. However, relative to other analytical techniques NMR is slow and (...)
Friday 12
11:00 - SEMINAR - Category Errors in Natural Resource Management Planning – Issues and Solutions Website | More Information
Documenting the contribution of nature to human wellbeing, e.g., as human values or ecosystem services, is critical to the effective management of natural resources. However, problems with classifying desirable end states, including the mixing of means and ends, undermine research, planning and (...)
