Seminar Series

Each week the IAE hosts a seminar on a broad range of topic, 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 every Friday at 11:30am during semester (Building 1, Level A, Room 21, the theatre next to Mizzuna Café).

See below for a list of seminar speakers and topics for Semester 1, 2018. You can see more details about each seminar closer to the presentation date under Upcoming Events on our homepage.
