Natural resilience

Can our environment keep bouncing back? Is the question raised by the symposium of the same title being organised by the Faculty of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources.

Natural systems are inherently resilient but just as their capacity to cope with disturbance can be degraded, so can it be enhanced. Agriculture encompasses the widest range of managed ecosystems and the scientific and economic resilience of such systems is of crucial importance to issues of food, water and energy security.

International guest speakers and Australia’s key thinkers will join the Faculty’s interdisciplinary community to discuss the latest emerging research.

Resilience: Can Our Environment Keep Bouncing Back? Friday 8 July 2011 at the New Law Building, Eastern Avenue.
