about the conference

This international conference will explore evidence for a range of environmental changes in arctic ecosystems affecting the Gyrfalcon, its competitors, and its prey, ptarmigan, waterfowl, seabirds and others, to predict effects and outcomes of global climate change, identify areas of uncertainty, and develop global strategies for measuring and mitigating them. We will publish a conference proceedings in what we expect will be a landmark publication of information, ideas, and strategies.

The conference will take place in the Simplot Ballroom at Boise State University in Boise, Idaho, USA, beginning on Tuesday 1 February and running through Thursday 3 February 2011. It will feature three days of invited and contributed scientific papers and posters, as well as strategy workshops and tours of The Peregrine Fund's World Center for Birds of Prey.

Convened by: The Peregrine Fund, Boise State University (the Raptor Research Center, and the Biological Sciences Department), and the US Geological Survey (Snake River Field Station).
