David Gonçalves, an assistant Professor in the Department of Biology, Faculty of Sciences, University of Porto, and researcher in the group Conservation Genetics and Wildlife Management(CONGEN) will give a seminar entitled "Ecology, Conservation and Management of Azorean game bird species" on 4th of November, at 14.30, in Campus Agrário de Vairão auditorium.

 

Azorean terrestrial bird species present particularities that have important implications in local game management and conservation. In this seminar David Gonçalves will describe part of the project on the Azorean game species, namely the studies developed with birds (woodcock, common quail and common snipe), focusing on ecological aspects and some evolutionary traits.
