Event – Celebrated biologist and author Tim Low in Melbourne, 26 September – book now!

Posted in Events, Policies, Research by Ferne Edwards on September 19th, 2007

Under climate change Australia can expect more floods, cyclones, fires and droughts, but what does this mean for our natural environment? Could increased temperatures and shifting rainfall patterns expose our native plants and animals to yet another threat?

Tim Low, celebrated biologist and author of six books including “Feral Future” and “The New Nature“, arrives in Melbourne this month with a warning for everyone who cares about the environment.

“A warmer world will mean a weedier, more pest-infested and diseased world. Not only will climate change create many losers, but also winners we would rather not have,” he says.

Tim’s talk, “Climate Change and Invasive Species – Turning Nature on its Head“, is a free event but numbers are strictly limited. It will be held at Space 39, Level 2, 39 Little Collins Street in Melbourne on Wednesday, September 26 at 7.30pm as an adjunct to the Invasive Species Council’s Annual General Meeting.

To book please RSVP to John Sampson at Victoria Naturally by emailing info @vnpa.org.au or by phoning (03) 9341 6508.
