      Call for Papers for the 35th Annual Meeting of Western Field
      Ornithologists


      Abstracts are now being accepted for presentations at the 35th annual
      meeting of Western Field Ornithologists, to be held 13�17 October
      2010 in Palm Desert, California.

      Oral presentations should reflect original research or summarize
      existing unpublished information, and should be presented in a manner
      that will interest both 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 to Dave
      Quady at davequady@... no later than 1 July 2010, following this
      format:


      YOUR LAST NAME, YOUR FIRST NAME, CO-AUTHOR NAMES (Times, 10-point
      type, all caps). Title of your talk (Times, 10-point type, bold).
      Your affiliation and/or sponsoring organization(s), if any, complete
      mailing address (Times, 10-point type, italics); e-mail address
      (Arial, 9-point type, italics).

      Brief (300-word maximum) summary of the objectives, methods, results,
      significance, and generality of your study (Times, 10-point type).


      Please include a brief (60-word maximum) bio for the primary author.

      In total, we expect to have sufficient time in the schedule for about
      22 presentations.

      For more information about the meeting, please visit the WFO web site
      at www.westernfieldornithologists.org. We look forward to seeing you
      in Palm Desert!
