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.
On the 20th of August 2018, three plenary speakers will give insights into migration strategies and conservation issues related to landbirds moving along the world's major flyways:
- The American Flyway - Caz Taylor (http://caz.tulane.edu/)
- The Eurasian - African Flyway - Kasper Thorup (http://biodiversitet.snm.ku.dk/en/birdmigrationlab/)
- The East Asian - Australasian Flyway - Simba Chan (http://storkibisspoonbill.org/simba-chan/)
These plenaries will be part of a day including student talks, panel & plenary discussions where we identify differences and common grounds between flyways for the effective conservation of migrant landbirds across the Globe.
The symposium is open to anyone interested in landbirds, migration and how fundamental differences or similarities in ecology might arise in different parts of the planet. Please remember to come to the IOC one day in advance to take part! More details will follow soon.
