Dear Colleagues

Re: Endangered Species Research

I write to

  1.. Inform you of our forthcoming "Tracking Vertebrates for Conservation"
special issue; of direct relevance to many fish/fisheries biologists.
  2.. Let you know of the most recent bird/fisheries paper published in 
Endangered Species Research (ESR) <http://www.int-res.com/journals/esr/
Both detailed below.

1. "Tracking Vertebrates for Conservation"

Last month the first Inter-Research Symposium "Tracking Marine Vertebrates
for Conservation" was held as part of the International Sea Turtle
Symposium. Talks included those on large pelagic fish, turtles, seabirds,
seals and great whales. Papers presented will form part of special issue on
"Tracking Vertebrates for Conservation" to be published before the end of
2007. Manuscripts are already arriving for what promises to be a pivotal
publication. Note:

  1.. this is an open call for submitted manuscripts.
  2.. there has been interest from terrestrial as well as marine workers and
I would stress that we are open to contributions on all taxa.
  3.. that all contributions will be published online and open-access and
thus extremely high impact is assured
2. Most recent paper

Good TP, McClure MM, Sandford BP, Barnas KA, Marsh DM, Ryan BA, Casillas E
(2007) Endangered Species Research Quantifying the effect of Caspian tern
predation on threatened and endangered Pacific salmon in the Columbia River

PDF copies of this paper and all other ESR content are freely available at
the journals website http://www.int-res.com/journals/esr/.

Please forward this message to anyone you might be interested in fish
conservation/wildlife tracking.

With kind regards
