Title: International Wader Study Group - shorebird research and conservation
Title abbreviated: IWSG
Creator: IWSG = International Wader Study Group <Thetford>
Contributor: Verkuil, Yvonne [Chair]
Abstract: The International Wader Study Group (IWSG) is an organisation of enthusiastic professionals and amateurs researching waders, also called shorebirds (Charadriiformes). The involvement of the members of the IWSG in wader research ranges from observing waders in one’s own backyard to extensive, long-term studies aiming at a deeper understanding of spectacular wader phenomena like long-distance migration, living in extreme environments and variable reproductive strategies. The IWSG produces two main publications: The Wader Study Group Bulletin is a journal covering all aspects of shorebird research and conservation and the International Wader Studies (IWS) is an occasional publication dealing with individual species or issues. Additionally the IWSG presents its research programs like the Sanderling (Calidris alba) Project, which should unravel unknowns about the life of this long-distance migrant.
