The Organizing Committee, Sonya Broughton, Modika Perera, Maria José de Sousa Majer and Jonathan Majer invite you to the 41st AGM and Scientific Conference, which will take place at the Vines Resort in the Swan Valley, just north of Perth.
Our conference logo is the Western False Saturn Moth or Dryandra Moth Carthaeidae, Carthaea saturnioides. Feeding on Grevillea and Banksia species, the moth’s activity season is August to December, so you may have a chance to see it in its native range.
There will be five themes:
- Invasive species and biosecurity
- Threats to biodiversity and their amelioration
- Food safety
- Insect biology and ecology
- Systematics and taxonomy
There will also be a half-day mid-conference tour of the Swan Valley. This relaxed region is where you’ll find rolling vines, meandering waterways and lush natural bushland, as well as award winning wineries, breweries and food producers. As Western Australia’s oldest wine growing region, many vineyards are still owned by descendants of European emigrants. Many wineries offer cellar door tastings, or if you’re partial to a pint, there are four microbreweries offering award winning drops.
We look forward to seeing you over here in the West.
