NETS2005 was held 27 to 29 July 2005 at Rydges Hotel in Christchurch. The theme this year was on Biosecurity, and what we can do about in in our Neighborhood - be it urban, rural, local, regional, national or the Pacific Neighborhood.

The papers given covered a wide range of topics from new methods of vertebrate pest control, modelling of weed and insect spread, and working with the community to preventing the spread of aquatic pests. Once again the seminar attracted several international speakers from Australia, Great Britain and the Pacific Islands
