Event Name HIE Seminar Series

Date Tuesday, 24 May 2022

Time 12:00 – 1:00 PM

Description

Dr. Lena Schmidt, hosted by Dr. Kristine Crous. Lena is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Rader Community Ecology lab at University of New England. She completed her PhD at the Hawkesbury Institute for the Environment under supervision of Prof Sally Power, Dr. Amy-Marie Gilpin, Prof. James Cook, Dr. Paul Rymer and Dr. Paul Gibson-Roy.

Lena’s research is focusing on floral traits and floral resource availability as drivers of plant-insect interactions within disturbed (e.g. burned) or highly transformed (e.g. agriculturally intensified) landscapes. She employs a variety of methods including large-scale manipulative field and glasshouse experiments exploring factors influencing pollinator choice of foraging plants, floral resources use by insects across different seasons and the impact of climate change on floral rewards.

This will be a zoom-only seminar at 12 pm.

Eucalyptus-in-a-Changing-ClimateEucalypts in a Changing Climate

Sunday, 15 May

Join us for a conversation about eucalypt forests in a changing climate and the role of culture, art and science in communicating the urgent need for global and local change. This discussion will be followed by a tour of EucFACE, a massive experiment that exposes large areas of native Cumberland Plain forest to elevated levels of carbon dioxide — the levels we are expected to reach by 2050.

This event will take place at Western Sydney University - Hawkesbury Campus in Richmond. A minibus will be available from Richmond train station. This is an outdoor event and will be postponed in the event of strong winds or heavy rain.
