Upcoming conference: Gyrfalcons and Ptarmigan in a changing world

The Peregrine Fund is organising a conference in February 2011 about the Gyrfalcon and the Ptarmigan (the falcon’s most important prey).

From the announcement:
This international conference will explore evidence for a range of environmental changes in arctic ecosystems affecting the Gyrfalcon, its competitors, and its prey, Ptarmigan, waterfowl, seabirds and others, to predict effects and outcomes of global climate change, identify areas of uncertainty, and develop global strategies for measuring and mitigating them. We will publish a conference proceedings in what we expect will be a landmark publication of information, ideas, and strategies.
