Quail: Proceedings of the National Quail Symposia

Quail: Proceedings of the National Quail Symposia

 
The University of Tennessee, Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency, National Bobwhite Conservation Initiative (NBCI) and National Bobwhite Technical Committee (NBTC), invite you to the Eighth National Quail Symposium, July 24-29, 2017, in Knoxville, Tennessee. The week begins with the 23rd Annual Meeting of NBTC and continues as Quail 8. This is the eighth in the series of Northern Bobwhite symposia dating back to 1972, and since Quail III in 1992, western quail have been included. Beginning with Quail VII, the symposia series has been led by NBCI and the National Bobwhite Technical Committee. Quail 8 will feature current quail management and research, including updates and progress of the National Bobwhite Conservation Initiative and The Western Quail Plan. Abstracts will be reviewed by the Quail 8 editorial committee, and those deemed suitable for development as full manuscripts will be selected, with authors notified by 15 February 2016. Subsequent manuscript deadline is 1 July 2016, enabling distribution of the peer-reviewed proceedings at the meeting.
