Conservation area:
Freshwater Ecology MSc student (UC) Alexandra Barclay will speak about her research into the ecology of alpine tarns and the management of their little known ecosystems, macroinvertebrate communities and food-web structures. She will also discuss the importance of tussock surrounding tarns and risks from climate change.

Master's in Science student Christopher Car (BEng(Hons) & BSc) will present his research into the use of artificial intelligence to recognise different species automatically in the NZ bush through thermal imaging. The aim is to facilitate imaging 24/7, either trigger traps or poison, and/or upload data to a central server.

Supper and a chat afterwards.
