5th Sept. 6.30pm BCSA AGM

The future is very exciting. However we need a team to manage it.  Please, we need committed members to help run this organisation.  Click here and read pages 4-5 on our August newsletter for more details.

7.00pm Public Talk by Dr Stefan Caddy-RetalicIt is time to protect our trees.

Dr. Stefan Caddy-Retalic, Adjunct lecturer, School Biological Sciences, University of Adelaide will provide an overview of studies undertaken to review the urban tree protection laws across Australia in order to assist with best practice tree protection.  Stefan’s work focuses on how to effectively manage ecosystems in the face of climate change. He has a particular interest in urban trees and is interested in bridging the gap between scientists and government.

“As a scientist I integrate traditional ecological survey techniques (vegetation surveys, invertebrate trapping and arborculture assessments) with cutting edge technology (stable isotopes, DNA barcoding and remote sensing), to integrate species change from a population to landscape level.”
“My field sites span a strong climate gradient, from the south coast of South Australia through the Mount Lofty Ranges, Flinders Ranges, Gammon Ranges and Stony Plains, to investigate changes within species, communities and biomes, to better understand the interrelationships and drivers of this change.”


The meeting is scheduled to start at 6:30 pm. We would like to start on time, so if you are coming please arrive ten minutes earlier to find a place. Bring a plate to share and do not forget your cup.
