Australian Plants Society (Victoria)

Promoting the Appreciation and Preservation of Australian Plants

Biodiversity Symposium

“Restored Ecosystems or Green Deserts and Ecological Traps”.

Hosted by the Field Naturalists Club of Victoria Inc, 1 Gardenia Street, Blackburn 3130. The Biodiversity Symposium will be around the theme of revegetation, recovery, rehabilitation, reinstatement, replacement, regeneration and “restoration” of ecosystems after they have been damaged, if not destroyed, by human activity. The realities of the complexity of biodiversity, and what needs to happen to monitor and measure real success to achieve better outcomes in a range of environments, will be subjects for open and frank discussion. The actual value of “offsets” in the real world will also be discussed.
