(POSTPONED) Restoring bird populations: scaling from species to ecosystems, BOU2020
Restoring bird populations requires working at a range of scales, from individual animals to whole ecosystems, and from local sites to whole flyways. Birds can be indicators of recovery trajectories for entire ecosystems and can be integral to the success of habitat restoration, for example through their functional roles as predators, scavengers and dispersal agents.
This landmark international conference will bring together the latest science underpinning the restoration of bird species and their ecosystems, focussing on successes, challenges and future directions. This 2020 event coincides with a milestone year for assessing Aichi targets for biodiversity conservation, and comes on the eve of the UN Decade of Ecosystem Restoration that will run from 2021-2030. It will be of broad interest to conservation-, population- and community-ecologists, practitioners and policy makers.
