John Confer (Biology) Presented in Wisconsin


Contributed by Nancy Pierce

John Confer gave three presentations at the Golden-winged Warbler Conservation Workshop in Siren, WI. These presentations were based on long-term studies of a nationally-unique population of golden-winged warblers conducted with many summer research students. These results helped formulate national research and conservation goals for this species, one of the rarest and most rapidly declining species in eastern United States.

1) Local and regional golden-winged warbler habitatt associations.
2) Regional patterns of habitat change and impacts of changes in land use.
3) Rights-of-way conservation opportunities in New England.
