With only 17 out of the more than 200 Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) accredited zoos in the United States employing full time nutritionists, there exists a critical shortage of nutrition expertise at the vast majority of facilities within AZA. Similar institutions outside the US face the same challenges. Many of these institutions care for hundreds and in some cases thousands of different species, all with specific dietary needs that may even vary across seasons and reproductive conditions.

GIS, GPS, satellite imagery, and mapping have become essentials in the toolboxes of researchers, natural resource managers, and conservationists.  Yet these resources are often not readily accessible to practitioners around the world.  Most restricting are the limited access to specialized and expensive commercial software and the lack of training opportunities targeted at conservation applications.  Open source tools are freely available, can be modified and freely redistributed.  In recent years, several powerful open source tools for geospatial analysis have emerged,

The 14th annual Ecology and Evolution of Infectious Disease meeting will be held at Cornell University on June 3 – 5, 2016.
 
There are four primary themes for the meeting, with both theoretical and empirical work in plant and animal systems included in all themes.
Monday, 20 June 2016 (All day) - Wednesday, 29 June 2016 (All day)

This course provides a theoretical and analytical background in the use of camera traps to address ecological and conservation-oriented questions including the estimation of animal abundance, density and occupancy, and the monitoring of population trends over time. In addition to 3-day modules on both occupancy modeling and density estimation using spatial-explicit approaches, the course includes a module on data management, and time for focused work with instructors on participants’ own datasets. Andy Royle, Jim Hines and Jim Nichols will all be involved in instruction.
