Contributions to the Spanish Ornithology Congress 2010

The Biodiversity and Animal Conservation lab with the Biodiversity and Landscape Ecology lab participated in the 20th Congress of Spanish Ornithology in Tremp.
The Congress was organized by SEO/BirdLife and the town council of Tremp. Since 4th to 8th of December more than 300 ornithologist and bird’s watchers shared their experiences and views about the world of birds in Tremp. “Mountain birds” was the main subject in this edition, although other interesting questions related to birds were also discussed.
The two groups from the Biodiversity department at the CTFC participated with six oral communications and two posters (see the descriptions below). The poster named “Application of un-manned airplane (UAV) in bird monitoring” by Francesc Sardà won the prize of the best poster of the Congress. In addition, two members of the department took part in two different round table discussion, Miguel Clavero took part in the “Mountain birds and climatic change” table and Gerard Bota took part in the round table discussion entitled “Birds and Agriculture: the irrigated land conflict”.
