More Productive and Biodiverse Farms Forum

On behalf of the Australian National University Sustainable Farms team and the Deakin University Blue Carbon Lab, you are invited to an upcoming event at Downtown Deakin, Melbourne.

More Productive and Biodiverse Farms is a half day forum to share the vision for restoration on farms in Australia’s temperate woodlands. We will share ground-breaking research on the opportunities to improve biodiversity conservation and productivity on farms through improved management of natural assets, including remnant vegetation, plantings and farm dams.

This event will bring together environmental scientists, economists, regional field ecologists, farmers and investment advisors for a reflective and robust discussion about how we can save our disappearing woodlands.

Featured speakers include:

  • Professor David Lindenmayer, Lead Scientist Sustainable Farms, Professor of Ecology and Conservation Biology, Fenner School of Environment and Society, The Australian National University
  • Dr Martino Malerba, Research Fellow, Blue Carbon Lab, Deakin University
