Royal Society of Victoria Lecture on Science for Conservation Decisions

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.
