The Australian Society of Soil Science Inc and the New Zealand Society of Soil Science invite you to join us at the Joint ASSSI and NZSSS Soil Science Conference. This is the 5th Joint ASSSI and NZSSS Soil Science Conference, and the first to be held in Tasmania. Over 300 delegates from throughout Australasia are expected to attend, including researchers, analysts, educationists, advisors, extension agents, land managers and policy makers from national, state and local government, universities and the private sector. The conference theme Soil Solutions for Diverse Landscapes refl ects the breadth of soils, landforms and climate across the region, and the corresponding breadth of land use; from agriculture to forestry, conservation, recreation and urban use.
