Society for Ecological Restoration’s Call for Presentations Deadline Apr 30


The Society for Ecological Restoration (SER) Northwest Chapter and the Society for Ecological Restoration Western Canada Chapter invite presenters for the SER 2024 North American Conference, Cross-Biome Connections: Ecological Restoration on a Diverse Continent. This conference will be held October 28 – November 1 at the Pan Pacific Hotel in Vancouver. The conference will provide an interactive forum to learn and share about the science and practice of ecological restoration across ecosystems and disciplines to better connect a diverse and engaged restoration community. Presentations are invited on topics that are of interest to a regional and wider continental audience of practitioners and scientists of ecological restoration and ecosystem management.

The conference is planned to include the following thematic topics:

  • Theories, approaches, and practices in a transdisciplinary environment;
  • Restoration across biomes, ecosystems, and communities;
  • Landscape-scale restoration and connectivity;
  • Trait-based restoration and functional ecology;
  • Ecological resilience and restoration under global climate change;
  • Restoration for migratory species;
  • Tribal or Indigenous perspectives and practices in restoration;
  • Community engagement and education;
  • Monitoring and assessment of restoration success; and
  • Restoration specific to a given biome or ecosystem, such as wetlands and other aquatic
    environments, forests, grasslands, sage-steppe, alpine, arctic and boreal.

Presentations that address the conference themes are especially welcome, although other restoration topics relevant to North America are also encouraged. Presentations are encouraged to include scientific research or restoration case studies, or encompass social, cultural, and economic aspects of ecological restoration and management. Oral presenters should plan on speaking for 10-15 minutes and reserving 5 minutes to answer audience questions.

The SER call for contributed presentations will close on April 30.
