"Conserving Birds in Human-Dominated Landscapes"

The American Museum of Natural History in New York City will host its annual spring symposium on April 27-28, "Conserving Birds in Human-Dominated Landscapes."

The subject of conserving rare birds in the wild has long been the focus of research, debate, and action among scientists and resource managers. Recently, there has been growing recognition of diverse avian responses to broad-scale human activities in urban centers, agricultural areas, coastal communities, working forests-the wide array of landscapes we call home. Within these human-dominated systems, shifts are occurring in bird abundance, distribution, behavior, life histories and, ultimately, evolutionary potential. This conference will focus on unique challenges to, and key opportunities for invigorating bird diversity in the areas most heavily impacted by human activities.
