“Ecology and conservation of the world’s grassland birds” | One-day meeting at IOC2018, in Vancouver, Canada
The British Ornithologists’ Union is holding an open one-day meeting on the registration day, 20 August, of IOC2018, in Vancouver, Canada.
Grasslands are found right across the planet, from tropical savannahs to alpine meadows, from coastline to mountain peak, forming key habitats for a wide range of species. Many of these habitats are under considerable threat from anthropogenic changes including land use change, urbanisation and climate change, which can impact on these important ecosystems and the birds which rely on them.
The day has been planned specially to provide the large numbers of delegates arriving to register for IOC2018 on the Monday, with a series of presentations they can pop in and out of during this free open day.
