This meeting brings together a distinguished list of international researchers representing the full spectrum of avian senses. The speakers include researchers focusing on vision and wind farm collisions, taste and crop damage prevention, olfaction and fishing by-catch, hearing and noise pollution, nociception (pain) and welfare, and emotional state and reintroduction ecology. Drawing on our speakers’ expertise in behaviour, conservation, physiology, mathematical modelling, molecular biology, neurobiology, and innovative experimental paradigms, we hope to drive forward the field of avian sensory biology, and discuss how research on avian senses can inform conservation and welfare practices.
