The AWEA Wind Project Siting and Environmental Compliance Seminar is where leaders from the wind industry, environmental permitting and compliance sector, the scientific community and regulatory officials come together for a robust discussion about the current state of siting and environmental compliance, and network. Take away key insights within wind energy development, operations, evolving trends, and strategies for improving the project permitting process and maximizing the output of operating assets while increasing regulatory and legal certainty.
The Annual Conference attracts over 500 natural resources professionals in the fields of wildlife biology, fisheries and fisheries management, information and education and law enforcement. The event provides opportunities for education, discussion, and exchanging of ideas.
The annual conference and exhibition for the U.S. wind industry is heading to New Orleans. Hosted by the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA), WINDPOWER is the nexus of wind energy professionals who converge to generate actionable ideas for expanding the wind energy economy through technology, ingenuity, and collaboration.
ESA 2016 theme: Novel Ecosystems in the Anthropocene
With a rapidly changing climate, altered hydrological and nutrient cycles, dominance of large regions by agricultural and urban ecosystems, and massive movement of species to new continents, the Earth has entered a new epoch characterized by human influence. Understanding the basic principles of ecology will be more important than ever before, to predict how new combinations of species in new environments will develop into functioning, novel ecosystems.
Building on The Ecological Society of America’s 2015 Centennial meeting—Ecological Science at the Frontier—the 101st annual meeting will support sessions that explore how ecosystem structure and function respond to multiple drivers of change, how resource managers can cope with developing novel ecosystems, and potential benefits and problems that society will face as we progress into the Anthropocene Epoch.
The North American Society for Bat Research (NASBR) is a society dedicated to the promotion and development of the scientific study of bats (Chiroptera) in all its branches, including conservation and public education. The society holds an annual meeting called the North American Symposium on Bat Research, usually in October, of professional bat researchers from throughout North America, with occasional attendees from Europe, Asia, Africa, and Central and South America.
