Event description: 

The management of ecosystems and habitats generally focuses on the direct manipulation of vegetation, or factors controlling it, to deliver required outcomes. The approaches used not only influence species responses, but also how land functions to protect and provide resources, support livelihoods, and promote human well-being.

Effective management of ecosystems and habitats requires evidence to inform both policy development and “hands-on” implementation, involving academics, conservation managers, ecological consultants, local authority staff, the private sector and policymakers. This conference will bring these parties together to explore new developments in research, policy and practice relevant to ecosystem and habitat management.
