‘Conservation, management and restoration of coastal cliffs and lake bluffs’

Tuesday 17th and Wednesday 18th September 2013, Llandudno, North Wales, UK

Understanding the significance of coastal cliffs and lake bluffs and their management requirements in the face of human exploitation and the impact of climate change is a major challenge. In order to identify the status, issues and management requirements of these areas a symposium is organised.

Symposium Themes

Oral presentations and poster papers are invited on the following themes:

  • Descriptions by continent including location, scale, and habitat
  • Geology, geomorphology (‘hard’ and ‘soft’ rocks)
  • Nature conservation values, nature reserves etc
  • Management, sea birds, rare species (e.g. chough), invertebrates etc
  • Restoration of coastal grasslands and heath
  • Coastal defence
  • Great Lakes bluffs.

The meeting will be of interest to a wide range of interests including, but not exclusively, coastal conservationists, land managers, ecological consultants and academics.
