Call for Papers for the 38th Annual Conference of Western Field Ornithologists

Abstracts are now being accepted for presentations at the 38th annual conference of Western Field Ornithologists, to be held 22–25 August 2013 at the Red Lion Hotel in Olympia, WA. This is a joint conference with the Washington Ornithological Society, hosted by the Black Hills Audubon Society. The science sessions will be held on the 23rd and 24th (Friday and Saturday).

Oral presentations should reflect original research or summarize existing unpublished information, and should be presented in a manner that will interest both serious amateur and professional field ornithologists.

Talks relating to the following themes are solicited: • Status, distribution, migration, and population dynamics of birds • Systematics and biogeography of birds • Ecology, behavior, and evolution of birds • New information on avian field identification problems • Descriptive field identification • Science-based conservation and management of birds • Techniques for field study of birds, including censusing, monitoring, and other methods; and
results of studies applying such techniques

Research described should apply to birds of the WFO region: western North America (from Alaska through Mexico, and the Great Plains to the Pacific coast) and the eastern Pacific Ocean. All talks should identify study objectives, describe methods and data analysis, present results, discuss the significance of the research, and propose future research directions.

Oral presentations shall be allotted 15 minutes, including 3 minutes for questions and discussion. In total, we expect to have sufficient time in the schedule for about 22 presentations.

An abstract of your presentation should be submitted electronically to Debbie Van Dooremolen at debbie.vandooremolen at snwa.com and to Dave Quady at davequady at att.net no later than 12 June 2013, following this format:
