Society for Ecological Restoration Australasia (SERA) meetings aim to provide an essential international forum for scientists and practitioners who look to restoration as a means to conserve the planet's dwindling biodiversity and failing ecosystems. These meetings provide a critical platform to assist us in defining the principles of restoration, understanding goals and milestones, debating what ecosystem functions to measure and closing the gap between the science of restoration ecology and the practice of ecological restoration.

Dates: 17-21 November 2014
Location: Nouméa, Complexe Nouvata Parc, New Caledonia
Language: English

Goal of the conference in New Caledonia
This conference aims to bring together land managers, scientists and practitioners who work in biodiversity restoration at a time of significance for the region's species, ecosystems and landscapes with a focus on restoration of degraded sites, in particular in island regions.

Topics that are relevant, of high focus and contemporary in Australasia, will also be highlighted during the conference program. Papers will be sought from both researchers and practitioners engaged in restoration across Australasia.

After the success of the first SERA conference held in 2012 in Perth, Western Australia, New Caledonia is hosting the SERA conference in 2014 "From Large to Small Islands". We are proud to host this meeting and look forward to welcoming you!
