2011 Convention Session: Western Perspectives on WNS

Call for abstracts: Western Perspectives on White Nose Syndrome

A half-day session at the 2011 National Speleological Society Convention in Glenwood Springs, Colorado

THEME: Since it was first identified in 2006, White Nose Syndrome (WNS) has had a devastating impact on bats in the eastern United States. Mortality rates in some hibernacula have approached 100%. The response and planning for the expected arrival of WNS in the western United States has been uneven and often controversial. This session seeks contributed presentations from cavers, land managers, and biologists on the issue of WNS in western states for the purpose of improving communication and understanding. A panel discussion is planned for the end of the session.

Co-chairs: Rod Horrocks (NPS) and Dr. Carl Bern (USGS)

Wednesday July 20th, afternoon session

WNS Session information: http://nss2011.com/daytime-activities/s ... es-on-wns/

PRESENTATIONS: The planned format will be 15 minutes per presenter with 12 minutes for the presentation and three minutes for questions. Depending on the number of submissions, longer presentations may be possible.

Abstracts should be single-spaced in Times New Roman 10-point font, aligned on both margins, with each side margin 1 inch (8.5″ x 11″, the standard U.S. letter setting). Files must be readable in Microsoft Word. The abstract must use metric units. No indentations should be used for paragraphs, and a blank line should divide paragraphs. The following information and format should precede the abstract:

The abstract text box is limited to 250 words and should not include footnotes, tables, figures, maps, bibliographic references, or acknowledgments. Abstracts should be a summary of conclusions and results, not a statement of what topics the presentation will cover. Please identify the presenting author for multiple-authored abstracts.
