Presentations will focus on new, on-going and recently completed research, monitoring and habitat characterization projects. Presentations will be brief  project summaries (8 minutes or less). We have scheduled long breaks so that participants have the opportunity to meet with presenters and to network with colleagues, resource managers, and decision makers.  To submit an abstract, please go to Call for Abstracts.  Abstracts are due October 31, 2016.
