3er International Congress on Bird Migration and Global Change

Fechas: 03/09/2018 - 05/09/2018
Organiza: Migres Foundation
Lugar: Tarifa (Cádiz)
 
Given the evidence of the growing changes that are taking place in the biosphere, the urgency to identify and quantify the chain of consequences that this global change can make short and long term on the planet arises.

Getting these data is a pressing need both to work on the possibility of correcting present actions which reduce future consequences, and to react in time and generate a compensatory response to mitigate the already inevitable effects. This predictability is desirable not only for those who consider essential halt the loss of biodiversity, but also of extreme interest to all sectors related to human development that depend directly or indirectly on natural resources and therefore on the state of nature conservation.

The scientific analysis of migration and its variation over time allows to know the intensity of the modifications suffered by ecosystems whose state determines the pattern of this massive displacement of wildlife. Among the features that make birds a particularly appropriate animal group for the study of migration should be highlighted the high number of species and the consequent diversity it presents; their high visibility, facilitating monitoring and reducing effort and cost in their study; and the high variety of habitats in which they are present, offering a global and complete information. Birds become thus effective, accurate and cost-effective bioindicators to meet the ecological state of the planet and the evolution of global phenomena such as climate change.

In order to encourage the creation of measures and practical strategies to help to improve the above situation, the Migres Foundation offers a scenario meeting to share the results of the latest research on bird migration, global change and other issues directly derived therefrom, through the organization of the Third International Congress on Bird Migration and Global Change, to be held from 3rd to 5th September 2018 at the International Center of Bird Migration in Tarifa, Spain.

The general topics covered in the International Congress on Bird Migration and Global Change 2018 are:
  • Global change and population limitation in migrants
  • Global change and migration behaviour.
  • New tools for study and analysis
  • Diseases, parasites and invasive species: side effects of global change
  • Birds as indicators of global change
  • Adaptations of birds to global change
  • Confronting the new scenarios: conservation challenges
