Proposals for audiovisual and poster presentations at the Ohio Avian Research Conference are now being accepted. This year’s conference, the fifth annual one, will be held again at Denison University in Granville, Ohio on Saturday, October 14th. Columbus Audubon is one of the conference sponsors.

The Ohio Avian Research Conference brings together professional academics, citizen scientists, museum workers, agency and non-profit biologists, students and birders from all over Ohio to share the latest information with one another about their research work both locally and globally, and to promote the science of ornithology to a broader audience.

To submit a presentation please e-mail Casey Tucker, conference organizer, with the presentation title, an abstract, author information, and whether it is an audiovisual (a talk) or or poster presentation. Please note that A/V presentations are typically 15 minutes in length for most presenters. In addition, there will be a “lightning round” for undergraduates and high school students with shorter presentations.

The keynote speaker this year is Dr. Steve Beissinger. Dr. Beissinger is a Professor of Conservation Biology at the University of California, Berkeley where he held the A. Starker Leopold Chair in Wildlife Biology (2003-2013) and a research associate of the Museum of Vertebrate Zoology.
