Migratory Landbirds Round Table Discussion

Establishing a Migratory Landbirds Study Group (MLSG): meeting Wednesday 28 August, 1300-1400, Lecture Theatre SCI 3.05

The Convention for Migratory Species (CMS) Africa-Eurasia Migratory Landbirds Working Group (AEML WG) is convening a meeting to share ideas relating to one of the actions contained within the draft UNEP CMS Action Plan for AEML – to develop an international network of specialists and organizations involved in research, monitoring and conservation of migratory landbirds (relevant information documents, including the draft Action Plan can be found here). The AEML WG propose that one way of achieving this would be through the establishment of a Migratory Landbirds Study Group MLSG. With a similar approach to that of the International Wader Study Group (IWSG), the suggested aims of the MSLG would be to:

· Maintain contact between both amateurs and professionals studying migratory landbirds;

· Help organise international co-operative studies;

· Provide a vehicle for exchange of information on migratory landbirds and their biology;

· Promote scientific capacity building throughout the flyway (especially in Africa).

You are cordially invited to provide much-welcome input into how the MLSG might operate most effectively.
