Blood, Sweat and Tears: Biodiversity Data in the Real World. Dr Neil Burrows is the Director of the Science Division in the Department of Conservation and Land Management, Western Australia. The Division provides expert scientific research and advice to support the Department, which has prime responsibility for managing Western Australia’s conservation estate and biodiversity. Neil has 25 years experience working as a fire scientist and ecologist investigating fire behaviour and impacts in a range of natural ecosystems including Eucalypt forests, woodlands, and hummock grasslands. This has included working with Aboriginal people in the Western Desert to understand their use of fire so that appropriate fire management regimes can be devised to conserve biodiversity and to meet the cultural needs of Aboriginal communities. Neil also has strong research interests in native mammal reintroduction programs in Western Australia, and the control of introduced mammalian herbivores and predators. 


Neil Burrows

Biodiversity Information Standards: are we going wrong, or just not quite right? Jim Croft is Deputy Director Science and information at the the Australian National Botanic Gardens, Canberra and manages the botanical information systems of Australian National Herbarium programme of the Centre for Plant Biodiversity Research. He has 30 years experience based in herbaria and a personal interest in applying evolving information management technologies to the business and products of scientific biological collections. He is particularly interested large scale national collaborative projects projects including the Australia's Virtual Herbarium, the Atlas of Living Australia and Australia's Taxonomy Research and Information Network as contributors to a global biodiversity knowledge base.
