NEOTROPICAL WATERFOWL SYMPOSIUM, OCTOBER 1999

Ducks Unlimited, Inc., (DU) and I organized a symposium on neotropical Anatidae at the VI Neotropical Ornithology Congress held in Monterrey, Mexico.

The objectives were to facilitate communication among researchers and managers, to consolidate existing information, to generate ideas and stimulate further research, and to encourage and facilitate increased conservation of neotropical waterfowl.

Proceedings have been compiled by the DU Latin American and Caribbean Program and an e-mail discussion group, Anseriformes Neotropicales, has been established.
