National Quail Symposium Proceedings

Welcome to the abstract and article submission site, as well as the central repository of proceedings from National Quail Symposia. The primary purpose of the Proceedings is to publish peer-reviewed research and management papers from the National Quail Symposium series. Symposia focus on quails in the United States and adjacent countries.

The National Quail Symposium Proceedings is published by the National Bobwhite & Grassland Initiative (NBGI) and the National Bobwhite & Grassland Initiative Technical Committee (NBGI TC).

For each Symposium, a partnership is formed between NBGI/NBGI TC and a host institute or agency, to implement the conference and edit the proceedings. Quail 9 was hosted by the University of Missouri and the Missouri Department of Conservation. Other symposium partners are described in the front pages of each of the National Quail Symposium Proceedings.

See the Aims and Scope for a complete coverage of the journal.

For futher information about NBGI and their conservation efforts, please consult bringbackbobwhites.org. Scientific technical information about habitat management planning, data collection, and monitoring related to the NBGI Coordinated Implementation Program can be found at quailcount.org. If you would like to keep up-to-date with the latest announcements concerning quail symposia, please refer to the Quail Symposium website.
