      (Last) Call for Papers for the 34th Annual Meeting of Western Field
      Ornithologists

      Abstracts are being accepted for presentations at the 34th annual meeting
      of Western Field Ornithologists, to be held 10-13 September 2009 in Boise,
      Idaho.

      Submission deadline: 1 July 2009

      Oral presentations should reflect original research or summarize existing
      unpublished information and should be presented in a manner that will be of
      interest to 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. Dialogue between presenters and audience is a
      hallmark of WFO meetings.
      An abstract of your presentation should be submitted electronically to
      Debbie Van Dooremolen at <debbie.vandooremolen@...> and Jay Withgott
      at <withgott@...> no later than 1 July 2009.

      See info available via WFO's website for full details:
