Abstract: Urban development is one of the most transformative human land uses. It already dominates much of the globe, and urban areas will continue to expand rapidly, including in biodiversity hotspots. This poses enormous challenges to biodiversity conservation and urban planning. Urbanisation simultaneously provides opportunities for researchers to understand how species cope with, and adapt to, extreme and often novel selection pressures including habitat loss and fragmentation, pollution (noise, heat, light and chemical), altered biotic interactions (with pathogens, predators and prey) and interactions with people. Understanding how wildlife responds to urban life has become a global research priority, and ornithology is at the forefront of this research frontier.This conference will bring together ornithologists, conservation biologists, evolutionary ecologists, and behavioural ecologists from academic and NGO sectors to showcase the latest developments in urban avian research and conservation.
