Conserving Birds in Human-Dominated Landscapes (April 27 & 28, 2006)

This Biodiversity Symposium will examine new approaches for managing bird diversity in urban, suburban, agricultural, and industrial areas.

The American Museum of Natural History's Center for Biodiversity and Conservation will focus its eleventh annual symposium on conserving bird diversity in the areas most heavily impacted by human activities. While there have been many opportunities for scientists and managers to discuss the conservation of rare birds in the wild, this two-day conference will examine new approaches for managing bird diversity in urban, suburban, agricultural, and industrial areas; and explore possibilities for conservation in the face of an increasingly developed and industrialized world. Conservation decision-making in these landscapes will necessarily involve ecological and evolutionary considerations as well as an open discussion of ethical and aesthetic implications. Once we begin to understand potential or desired patterns of diversity, we can proceed to integrate the available science with new and adaptive approaches to land management in these areas.
