Guests may attend a technical session only with the primary registrant if the primary registrant is a speaker or presenter. If you are giving a talk, be sure to register right away if you have not already, because if you are not going to come for some reason, we need to know so that we can adjust the schedule and allow someone else to present. The technical schedule is now available to review online. Thank you especially to Bob McCleery, Chair of the program committee, for all his work putting the great program together especially since Bob will unfortunately be in Africa in June!

This valuable reference guide will help you identify and appreciate the wild bounty of the Rocky Mountain states.
Saving these beautiful and influential creatures requires that people come together at many different levels ranging from international to local collaborations. Overview: More than many fields, the science of climate change is growing at a rapid pace as we move from predictions to realized impacts each year. In this gathering of essays and illustrations celebrating fifty of the most common birds of the Upper Midwest, illustrator Dana Gardner and writer Nancy Overcott encourage us to take a closer look at these familiar birds with renewed appreciation for their not-so-ordinary beauty and lifeways. The influence of watershed and local scale factors in nutrients and periphyton accrual in streams draining an agricultural landscape. Fisheries professionals working on wild trout management in rivers and streams throughout the region need an avenue to share their knowledge and experiences with others who have been or are currently dealing with similar issues. Simulated effects of agricultural management strategies on water quantity and quality in streams of differing geology.
The event will likely be the largest gathering of fish and wildlife professionals ever, and will provide unprecedented opportunities for science-sharing and potential collaboration. Abstract from the 62nd Midwest Fish and Wildlife Conference. The influence of landscape context on stream ecosystem structure and function. The event provides opportunities for education, discussion, and exchanging of ideas. Among others, there are Sessions related to management, policy, urban biodiversity, and communication and education; other sessions focused on taxa such as white-tailed deer, large carnivores, herps, and coyotes; multiple sessions on both connectivity and disease; and for the first time a session focused on urban coastal areas. The 26th Annual Conference will be held in Reno, Nevada, on Sept.
Phenological Synchrony and Bird Migration: Changing Climate and Seasonal Resources in North America explores critical linkages between migratory birds, their seasonal resources, and shifts in climate change and weather events. Gathered from projects conducted during spring or fall migration, the book covers topics such as: Conservation and management considerations for migratory birds throughout the United States with respect to climate change The relation of climate on the wintering grounds to spring migration of short- and long-distance migratory birds The relationships of migratory birds and their seasonal resources, and the nature of these relationships in the face of climate change and extreme weather events at stopover habitats in both spring and fall migration With contributions from over 40 researchers, the book will help readers understand the effects of climate change on migratory birds and will provide a solid basis for further inquiry and research in this area. Many agencies are working proactively to protect coastal, freshwater and forest ecosystems and anticipate how climate change may exacerbate persistent threats from invasive species and wildlife diseases to Species of Greatest Conservation Need. Influence of landscape characteristics on stream macroinvertebrates. The sustainability of their populations remind us of the health of our land, air, rivers and oceans.
Talks will include an overview of past work on the species, updates on the most recent research, and descriptions of management actions that are underway or being considered.
