Topic: "Climate Change and our Biophysical Environment"
Presented by: Dr Javier Leon and Dr David Schoeman
Our biophysical environment is changing at unprecedented rates due to an exponential growing human population putting pressure and impacting finite resources.

Dr Schoeman is an ecologist researching and quantifying ecological consequences of climate change and is one of Australia’s delegates at the IPCC AR6 Scoping Meeting. Dr Leon is a physical geographer researching links between morphology, ecology and management in the current changing climate and sea-level rise context.
