Around the middle of the year, southern-hemisphere researchers commonly migrate north to more suitable habitats exchanging ideas and maybe a drink with their northern-hemisphere counterparts. This year an unusual reversion of this pattern about to happen. The regional meeting of the Society for Conservation Biology Oceania (SCBO) brings conservation scientist to remain in their southern habitats, where they are meeting in the Brisbane Convention and Entertainment Centre from the 6th to the 8th of July. 


We are pleased to announce that our group will contribute four presentations to SCBO2016, all of them on Wednesday, July 6th.


Two of our PhD candidates, Paypal and Hernán, will present their research in Poster Session 1 in the Foyer. From 4-6pm you can get a drink at the bar and chat to them about their work.
