Suddenly there’s a flurry of regional conservation meetings! While many will escape the cold and head up to Brisbane next week for the Society for Conservation Biology Oceania meeting; this week it’s the joint meeting of SCB Asia and Association for Tropical Biology and Conservation Asia-Pacific chapter in steamy Singapore: Conservation Asia 2016. Here’s what Qaecologists are up to in the City in a Garden this week:
Thursday, the 30th of June
Honorary Qaecologist Catharina Karlsson (she’s at conference host NUS, but spent a few months with us in Melbourne working on detectability with Mick McCarthy and Gurutzeta Guillera-Arroita) is talking Automatic acoustic monitoring: Current use and challenges, in the symposium Amphibian Conservation in Asia: Approaching Standard Methods.
11.00 – 11.15, LT51
Saturday, the 2nd of June
Qaeco alumnus Paing Soe has a poster and speed talk on Circuit theory based corridor modelling for wildlife crossing infrastructure placement along a planned major highway in southern Myanmar from his current work with WWF -Myanmar.
9.45-11.45, LT53, Speed talk session 3, and poster P51.
And Qaecologist Gerry Ryan is
foolish keen enough to be giving two talks on the same day:
Getting mixed up about vultures: new methods for estimating abundance from count
data, in the Averting Species Extinctions in Southeast Asia symposium.
Dolphins behaving badly: Investigating the role of infanticide and
boat traffic as threats to the Mekong River Irrawaddy dolphin.
17.30-17.45, LT50 (Last session of the conference!)
Have a great time if you’re going to the Lion City, and if not, keep a retina pointed at #ConsAsia2016 for updates from passionate practitioners and awesome academics later this week.
