working groups Panel

The Conservation Paleobiology Network (CPN) will sponsor working groups focused on research questions that integrate conservation paleobiologists, academic partners, wildlife managers, and stakeholders to develop effective strategies for translating products of historical research into conservation and management actions. Each working group will include up to three multi-day meetings to develop approaches to research or applications.

Working groups should engage key interest groups (conservation paleobiologists, archaeologists, environmental historians, federal and state management officers, and stakeholders), tackle problems that focus on one or more species, habitats, or organismal groups, and provide a clear vision of outcomes that will contribute to the broader mission of the CPN of establishing conservation paleobiology as both a basic and applied discipline. Outcomes may include publications or other products developed by working groups, tutorials and lectures contributed to the CPN webinars, and/or proposals to funding agencies to support further activities.

The working group panel will oversee solicitation, selection, development and assessment of working groups.

The proposal period is closed and we are no longer accepting proposals.
