Conservation SIG: Future Directions for the Management of Small Populations

A meeting and workshop to bring together researchers and practitioners to talk about aspects of management, reintroduction and monitoring of small populations.

The conference will be supported by a workshop on using occupancy models for small population monitoring and an optional field trip to see small population management in action on Cheshire Wildlife Trust sites.

Abstract Submission

The organisers invite submissions for oral presentations and posters by email to Matt Geary via email before 17:00 (GMT), Thursday 01 March. Submissions should consist of a short (max 350 words) abstract and an indication of whether you would like to be considered for an oral presentation or a poster.

Preference will be given to submissions which relate to both research and practice and we particularly encourage applied research and research which provides evidence for management practices.
