21st Conference Bird Numbers 2019: counting birds counts

The European Bird Census Council (EBCC) are encouraging registration for
their 21st Conference Bird Numbers 2019: counting birds counts, to be hosted
by University of Évora in the beautiful Portuguese city of Évora, 8-13th
April 2019 (visit http://www.ebcc2019.uevora.pt/). 

Bird Numbers 2019 will cover a broad range of topics related to the
monitoring of birds and their ecology and conservation, at both national and
continental scales, and will consider the wider relevance of such work for
science, conservation and society. The conference will feature invited
plenary speakers, parallel lecture sessions, posters, thematic workshops,
excursions and cultural events.

Whilst the exciting programme of plenaries*, lecture sessions and workshops
is now finalised (see www.ebcc2019.uevora.pt/programme), the deadline for
the submission of poster abstracts is 31st January. Suitable subject areas
include atlases and studies of bird distributions; biodiversity indicators;
surveys and monitoring of breeding birds; waterbird monitoring; new methods
and technologies; changes in wintering areas: long-distance migrants and
migratory connectivity; causes of change in bird populations and societal
responses; climate change impacts; renewable energies and their effects on
birds; effects of conservation actions and policies.
