Seminar Series


Each week the IAE hosts a seminar on a broad range of topics, such as environmental management, genetics, water science, ecotoxicology and conservation ecology. Speakers are drawn from external organisations and research institutions, as well as IAE researchers and students.

The seminars are open to the public, and are held most Friday's at 11:30am - 12:30pm.

To watch one or more of the seminars, on the selected day at 11:30am follow the Zoom link located in the table below. Recordings of all the talks are also featured below the table.
