The aim of the Congress is to learn from studies of shared and divergent biotas and cultures in different lands and oceans, in order to contribute solutions to sustaining species and ecosystem services.
The theme of the congress "Southern lands and oceans; Life on the edge? acknowledges the distinctive climates, biotas and human settlement patterns that occurred after the break up of Gondwana and the rapid changes occurring in many environments today. The theme also recognises that in New Zealand, life has literally evolved on the edge of the Pacific and Australian tectonic plates.
