Richard Shore, the principal investigator for the PBMS, was recently invited to present a paper at the 28th Vertebrate Pest Conference in Rohnert Park, California. Richard presented work, to be published in the conference proceedings, on the comparative accumulation of liver SGAR residues by different birds of prey and what this can tell us about relative risk to different species. The work was conducted in collaboration with PBMS partners in the WILDCOMS network.
Richard said “The conference included a one day symposium devoted to the issue of contamination of wildlife by SGARs. It was extremely stimulating and a great way to foster new collaborations as many of the main North American researchers in the field attended and presented papers about their work.”
