Event description
Celebrating 10 Years of the Krebs Lecture

About this Event

The Institute for Applied Ecology’s annual Krebs Lecture is dedicated to Professor Charles Krebs, a Thinker in Residence at the Institute for Applied Ecology, for his extraordinary contribution to our understanding and appreciation of our natural world. The annual Krebs lecture is a public lecture where thought-provoking insights into the environmental issues facing our world today are discussed.

This year’s speaker is Prof. David Lindenmayer from the Fenner School at ANU speaking on From Landscape transformation to ecosystem collapse: Key insights from long-term fire, forest and biodiversity research.’

To mark the 10th anniversary of the Krebs Lecture and in keeping with the theme of the lecture, we will hold a half-day workshop on the impacts of environmental stress on biodiversity.

This workshop will be targeted at bringing researchers from UC, ANU and CSIRO together, where presentations from early career researchers and HDR students will provide the basis for discussion. The key issues and potential areas for ongoing discussion and collaborations will be discussed.Discussion and networking will continue over drinks at The Well prior to the Krebs Lecture at 6.30 pm.
