Promoting collaborative research for migratory landbirds across flyways

You might have seen or heard about it elsewhere already, but Inspire4Nature is advertising 15 well-funded PhD positions including one specifically on Afro-Palearctic migrant bird declines, please find more information here

We are happy to announce a satellite symposium on "Landbird migration in different worlds" presented by the Migrant Landbird Study Group (MLSG) and the European Ornithologists Union (EOU) during the day of arrival at the 27th International Ornithological Congress in Vancouver, Canada.

Conference Announcement - Migrant Birds as Indicators of Climate Change

13 - 16 December, Gdansk, Poland

Across the globe migrant birds are confronted by and adapt to climate change and effects of human development during various stages of their life cycles. Afro-Palearctic migrants can serve as indicators of the effects of climate change across Europe and in Africa. While migrant birds know no borders, their continued existence depends on international collaboration of scientists and conservationists. Therefore, we gather in Gdansk as bird researchers from Europe and Africa, to share knowledge, discuss our concerns and explore potential solutions. We aim to generate a better understanding of issues relating to the conservation of migrant birds, as well as to set up collaborative projects on migrant landbird research.
