Wildfire and Prescribed Fire Effects on Wildlife in US Forests

Symposium   Symposia will be available on-demand on their scheduled date, then again at the conclusion of the conference.   Many wildlife species in the US require forest conditions created by large-scale disturbances, including fire. For thousands of years, fire was a driving process in shaping composition and structure of many ecosystems by killing encroaching […]

The National Fish, Wildlife, and Plants Climate Adaptation Network? Advancing Understanding of Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation

Symposium   Symposia will be available on-demand on their scheduled date, then again at the conclusion of the conference.   We introduce the National Fish, Wildlife, and Plants Climate Adaptation Network (NFWPCAN), a recently established, group of federal, state, tribal, and non-governmental scientists and professionals seeking to facilitate climate change adaptation. The group was born […]

Long-Term Data Sets for Biodiversity Monitoring, Research, and Management

Symposium Symposia will be available on-demand on their scheduled date, then again at the conclusion of the conference.   Long-term data sets are fundamental to understand complex ecological systems and inform management decisions for conservation of biological diversity, also known as biodiversity. Long-term data sets (>=10 years) consist of observational and experimental data that can […]

Leadership Does Not Require Titles, Just Like This Symposium

Symposium   Symposia will be available on-demand on their scheduled date, then again at the conclusion of the conference.   Since 2006, The Wildlife Society (TWS) has annually organized the Leadership Institute, a six-month course that provides leadership training to early-career professionals. TWS started this course with a firm belief that training members in leadership […]

The Rusty Blackbird- Recent Research to Fuel Conservation Strategies

Symposium   Symposia will be available on-demand on their scheduled date, then again at the conclusion of the conference.   The Rusty Blackbird (Euphagus carolinus) is a widespread North American species that has shown chronic long-term and acute short-term population declines, based both on breeding season and wintering surveys. Rusty Blackbirds are ecologically distinct from […]

Drones and Wildlife Management: Are We Tapping Into Their Full Potential in An Ethical Way?

Symposium   Symposia will be available on-demand on their scheduled date, then again at the conclusion of the conference.   Small unmanned aerial systems (sUAS) and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV; hereafter referred to as ?drones?) are increasingly being tested and used in wildlife management. Applications include incidental monitoring, systematic surveys, wildlife health assessments, habitat and […]

Meta-What? Statistical Analysis in the Era of Big Data

Symposium   Symposia will be available on-demand on their scheduled date, then again at the conclusion of the conference.   Studies specific to individual animals, study areas, or points in time provide insight into wildlife ecology and management, but their inference space is often limited to local populations and environmental conditions, and in time. In […]
