We are happy to announce a satellite symposium on “Landbird migration in different worlds” presented by the Migrant Landbird Study Group (MLSG) and the European Ornithologists Union (EOU) during the arrival day of the 27th International Ornithological Congress in Vancouver, Canada. On the 20th of August 2018, three plenary speakers will give insights into migration strategies and conservation issues related to landbirds moving along the worlds major flyways: Caz Taylor will represent the American flyways, Kasper Thorup the Eurasian-African flyways and Simba Chan the East Asian-Australasian flyway system. The symposium is open to anyone interested in landbirds.
The specific timing of the symposium is not settled yet, but will probably take place before lunch on the 20th.
