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

Friday 05
11:00 - SEMINAR - Importance of accounting for private benefits and increasing opportunity costs in planning ecological restoration. Website | More Information
Conservation projects implemented on private land often generate both public and private benefits. Private benefits are important determinants of cost-effectiveness, success, and adoption of such projects. However, they have not been adequately considered in ecological restoration planning and (...)
Monday 08
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 (...)

7:30 - PUBLIC TALK - 2016 Women in Agriculture Breakfast : Each year UWA SNAGS host a women in agriculture breakfast to introduce readily involved and influential women of the industry to those studying in the natural and agricultural sciences Website | More Information
Each year UWA SNAGS host a women in agriculture breakfast to introduce readily involved and influential women of the industry to those studying in the natural and agricultural sciences.

This year the event will be on the 16th August at 7:30am. This event has been a great success in (...)

16:00 - EVENT - Are Plant Barcodes the Future of Conservation? : Join Dr Ellen Jorgensen for this free talk More Information
Join Dr Ellen Jorgensen for a free talk during National Science Week. Hear about Ellen’s fascinating project to barcode native plant species in a remote area of Alaska for their future conservation. Dr Jorgensen is visiting from New York, where she is co-founder of Genspace – the world’s first (...)
Friday 19
11:00 - SEMINAR - Think long term: the costs and benefits of prescribed burning in the south-west of Western Australia Website | More Information
This study aims provide a framework through which the trade-offs between prescribed burning, wildfire suppression and wildfire damages can be brought to light and evaluated. It uses an economic model in conjunction with a wildfire simulator to test different prescribed-burning strategies and (...)
Saturday 20
9:00 - EVENT - 24 Hours of Biology Website | More Information
Join us for a jam-packed weekend of FREE biology-based talks, hands-on workshops and two ticketed science-themed theatre shows! Meet and talk to scientists about their studies and what it is like to be a researcher. Explore the expanse that is biology; learn about the complex lives of sharks, how (...)

17:00 - PUBLIC TALK - Nitrogen crises in agriculture and potential solutions : In this public lecture, Dr Udvardi will discuss basic and applied research and development approaches that aim to reduce the use and environmental impact of industrial N-fertlizers, while maintaining or even increasing plant productivity. Website | More Information
Low concentrations of mineral- and organic-nitrogen compounds in many soils limit plant growth and productivity. Industrial production and use of N-fertilizers relieved this constraint in many agricultural systems and fuelled the Green Revolution of the 20th century. Without N-fertilizers there (...)
