Annual Conference 1986
- New Zealand Ecological Society
The 35th Annual Conference was held at Lincoln College from 2–5 September 1986. There was an above average number of registrants (210). The conference began for many on Monday 1 September with a new-look, muddy boot field trip, a one day survey of Kowhai-Lords Bush led by Dr Colin Meurk. This was an interesting and enjoyable way to begin the week's conference activities and a style of field trip worth repeating. The symposium on Moas, Mammals and Climate was very successful, integrating a diverse range of scientific fields. Contemporary thinking on the subject of the symposium was summarised in a thought provoking two day programme expertly introduced by Graeme Caughley's initial review.
