The Terrestrial Wildlife Ecology Laboratory (TWEL) hosted Greg Soulliere and Mohammed Al-Saffar from the Upper Mississippi River and Great Lakes (UMR&GLR) Joint Venture science office in early April 2018. Greg and Mohammed, along with Drs. Chris Tonra (TWEL) and Robert Gates (TWEL) rolled out the Joint Venture's new waterfowl and waterbird conservation strategies, and discussed the biological foundations of all-bird habitat conservation planning, including the current land bird and shorebird conservation strategies. There was lively discussion about incorporating human dimensions and ecosystem goods and services goals into the biological planning of bird conservation at the landscape scale during an afternoon session held at the 4-H center on the campus of The Ohio State University.
