40th Annual Professional Biology Conference and AGM

Organization: 
Association of Professional Biology
Date of Event: 
Thursday, May 9, 2019 (All day) to Saturday, May 11, 2019 (All day)

Species at risk, population declines, ecosystem functions, economics, and science… where should we be putting our efforts?

The intensity of wildfires and extreme weather is increasing as the effects of climate change continue to spread. Land-use Professionals have a critical role in addressing these issues, while being faced with some of the greatest challenges in effecting change. 

A goal of this year’s AGM is to invite speakers to talk about the different priorities and approaches that are being advocated by government that, in turn, frames how we respond as a profession. Species at risk are a legislated priority, but what about the common species whose populations face continued decline? What about migration? Fish passage through culverts has been restricted as much as the migratory pathways of amphibians are being fragmented by the construction of roads.

Call for abstracts closes March 31, 2019!
