the conference does not meet your research field, would you please forward this

The main topics of the conference are:
1. Bio-Ecology (systematic, habitat, breeding biology, feeding niche, migration…)
5. Pressure and threatening factors
6. Usefulness, harmfulness, risky birds
7. Management and conservation

CIOA2-2012 is expected to be a dedicated event for ornithological
studies by bringing together scientists and decision makers from all over the
world in a great range of subjects under several technical sessions,
expositions, excellent lectures and roundtables. The conference will also expect
to provide opportunity for scientists to exchange their latest findings and
developments in a wide range of topics that are related to bird study and
conservation issues. Meanwhile it is also hoped to explore and contribute idea
and innovations to research and identify future ornithological issues.
