”From avian tracking to population process”: British Ornithologists' Union 2017 Annual Conference

This year’s BOU conference ”From avian tracking to population process” took place from the 28th to the 30th of March 2017 at the University of Warwick (UK) and some results of the DIVER project were presented.

The conference covered topics of movement ecology and their consequences for a suite of population processes. The objective of the conference was to bring together ornithologists and ecologists from academic and conservation organisations, to explore how the tracking of individuals can help to address key questions about population processes and their implications for conservation and management.

The two posters featuring the DIVER project displayed data of tracked red-throated divers, where one focused on site fidelity and temporal consistency during migration, moult and wintering, while the other had its focus on mobility and space utilisation during the annual cycle.
