CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
Abstracts are invited for oral and poster presentations at the 13th annual meeting of the Northeast Partners in Amphibian and Reptile Conservation (NEPARC) to be held 24-26 July 2012 at the Highland Center Lodge in scenic Crawford Notch, New Hampshire (http://www.outdoors.org/lodging/whitemountains/highland).
NEPARC is an active, diverse, and inclusive partnership dedicated to the conservation of amphibians and reptiles and their habitats throughout northeastern North America. Annual meetings are an ideal forum to share current research and conservation initiatives, participate in working group sessions, and to network with like-minded herpetological enthusiasts in the Northeast. Please visit http://www.northeastparc.org to learn more about NEPARC’s mission and current conservation initiatives.
Oral presentations will be approximately 20 minutes in total length (including ~ 5 minutes for questions). A special poster session will be held to facilitate the sharing of ideas and interactions among attendees and presenters. Presentations by students (graduate and undergraduate) are encouraged.
Presentations are invited on all topics related to reptile and amphibian conservation, and are especially solicited for the following topics:
Life on the Edge: Reptiles and amphibians that are at serious risk of local or regional extirpation and/or species at the edge of their range.
On the Ground: Population (species manipulation, augmentation, translocation, headstarting, etc.) and habitat management or restoration efforts to benefit reptiles and amphibians.
Forging Partnerships: Partnering to implement reptile and amphibian conservation efforts, including those identified in state Wildlife Action Plans.
Due to the structure of the meeting (including working group sessions), there are limited speaker slots available and some oral presentations may be asked to consider a poster presentation.
Registration will be open in the coming months and will be available on the NEPARC website (http://www.northeastparc.org). All presentations will occur on July 25-26. Registration and an informal social will begin on the evening of July 24, 2012.
DEADLINE for submission of abstracts to be considered for oral presentations is: 10 February 2012. Poster abstracts should be submitted by June 15, 2012.
Abstracts must be submitted electronically by sending an email to email@example.com
Please include ‘NEPARC Abstract’ in the subject line. Include the abstract as an attachment (Microsoft Word) and identify whether you prefer an oral or poster presentation. See Instructions for Preparing Abstracts (below) for formatting requirements.
