Student Day

This year we have a diverse array of presentations from invasive wasps to bats and from the use of drones in ecology surveying to tree-fern recruitment. 

We also have two guest speakers: Toni Love (associate editor of the Māori Law Review) on incorporating Vision Mātauranga into research and liaising with local iwi. Toni is of Te Ᾱtiawa descent and is a graduate of Victoria University of Wellington and; Dr Tom Etherington (Manaaki Whenua - Landcare Research) on "What to expect from the peer review process, and how to get involved with reviewing for NZ Journal of Ecology".
