D3SJ* meeting June 2008:

Adaptation of biological systems to climate change

Dr. Bob Sutherst is an Honorary Reader at the University of Queensland. He spent more than a decade researching the effects of climate change on insect pests, weeds and diseases in CSIRO. Bob was leader of the global pest activity within the International Geosphere Biosphere Program for five years. His main interest has been modelling geographical distributions of species to estimate risks from invasive species and to identify risk and opportunities for biological control. He is currently helping to lead the Stock Route Coalition of NGOs, which aims to have the stock route networks in Queensland and NSW give protected status as biodiversity corridors to facilitate adaptation to climate change.

Bob's will review some of the most interesting effects of climate change on species, explain how they can adapt to climate change and suggest ways in which we can help endemic species to survive in the fragmented landscape that modern human society has created.
