Symposium: New Frontiers in Managing Wild Pigs
This symposium brings together the latest science in the war on wild pigs, while also contextualizing emerging issues and threats to natural resources, agriculture, and animal and human health and safety posed by this invasive species
Symposium: Predator Management
This special symposium will welcome a broad range of research focuses, including aspects of predator biology that have implications for management of predators or ungulate populations, and lethal and nonlethal management in rural, urban, or suburban settings, among other topics.
Symposium: Management of Commensal Rodents
This symposium will welcome all aspects of commensal rodent management in multiple environments.
Symposium: Pest and Beneficial Bird Management
In this symposium we will discuss emerging issues and management of beneficial and pest birds, which is often complex given the diversity among avian taxa, laws and regulations, and the human dimensions associated with managing birds.
