I’m speaking tomorrow (7.00 pm, 22 November 2012) at the Royal Society of Victoria. It will be in the Lecture Theatre upstairs in the Royal Society building (entry via 8 La Trobe Street Melbourne). RSV lectures are open to all members of the public.
I will be speaking on “Science for Conservation Decisions”. The lecture will introduce environmental decision theory, and describe an experimental test of a particular example of this theory (optimal searching for a species; it seemed to work quite well in that instance). I will finish by briefly noting how decision theory helps clarify thinking, and that is perhaps its greatest strength.
If you are interested in seeing the slides I am planning to use, I have posted them here.
