ECONET AMERICA WORKSHOP


By Argelis Roman

Scientists and researchers from biological biosphere reserves throughout the Americas spent two days at the Smithsonian Institution National Museum of Natural History applying different procedures for gathering and disseminating information electronically during the EcoNetAmerica Workshop, May 21 and 22, 1995.

The Smithsonian Institution/Man and the Biosphere (SI/MAB) and the U.S. Man and the Biosphere Program organized the session for participants to gain experience using BioMon, a biodiversity monitoring database and associated protocol for data collection, developed by Francisco Dallmeier (Director of SI/MAB) and James Comiskey (data manager). BioMon is an integrated, computerized data management system with a focus on global forest biodiversity, but the system is designed to incorporate future links to research on other taxa.

Participants also examined the ecological measuring and monitoring program taking place in Europe and North America known as Biosphere Reserve Integrated Monitoring Programme (BRIM) and were also introduced to the MABFauna, a biological inventory computerized system, developed by the University of California at Davis, which has been tested at more than 60 biosphere reserves.

The ultimate goal is that through exchange of information scientists and the countries they represent can gain a thorough understanding of how ecosystems function, for the purpose of better managing their resources for the future.

Attending the workshop were 30 representatives from Latin American countries, Canada, Russia, and Germany. The participants developed a strategy work plan to ultimately electronically connect the 100 biological biosphere reserves in the Western Hemisphere.


HAITI'S MARINE ENVIRONMENTAL INITIATIVE


The alarming decrease in Haiti's marine life over the years has caused a noticeable increase in land clearance for farming. This has in turn increased soil erosion which, undoubtedly, affects the flora and fauna of the ocean in a negative way. In an effort to maintain the delicate balance of life in a society so dependent on the ocean for its economic and nutritional needs, the Fondation pour la protection de la biodiversite marine, which is a non-governmental organization dealing exclusively with the conservation and management of the marine ecosystem, has been established. It seeks to 1) identify any and all threats to the marine ecosystem and monitor its overall health, and 2) promote, through education, an awareness of the beauty and fragility of the marine environment. The foundation members include representatives of the Haitian professional, business, scientific, and literary sectors as well as the scuba diving club.

CALL FOR PAPERS


The World Heritage Tropical Forests Conference, "Science for Better Management and Understanding", requests papers for its September 1996 meeting in Cairns, Far North Queensland, Australia. The goal of the meeting is to provide an international forum for presentation of current scientific research on tropical forests; to provide an interface among scientists, managers, indigenous people and property owners to discuss the applications of scientific research and indigenous wisdom to World Heritage tropical forest protection, presentation and management; and to identify priorities for future research and management necessary for fulfilling the goals of the World Heritage Convention. The organizing committee has identified the following themes around which the conference program will be developed: 1) understanding World Heritage tropical forests and their conservation needs, 2) managing the use of World Heritage tropical forests, and 3) indigenous perspectives on understanding and managing World Heritage tropical forests. The organizing committee invites suggestions for additional topics relevant to the central theme. Potential presenters are invited to submit brief synopses addressing a topic related to the conference theme by October 30, 1995. The conference presentation formats will include: long papers (20 minutes plus ten minutes discussion), short papers (ten minutes plus five minutes discussion), posters (five minute address), and workshops.

JOB ANNOUNCEMENTS


The Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), founded in 1895 as the New York Zoological Society, has recently developed a new program, the Critical Ocean Wildlife Recovery Initiative (COWRI), to address the problems of declining populations of marine fish and other ocean resources from overuse and mismanagement. COWRI has three program areas: research on critically affected ocean species and habitats; marine conservation policy; and public awareness and conservation education. Initially WCS is focusing COWRI on fisheries, highly migratory ocean giants (sharks, bluefin tuna, swordfish, and marlin), and coral reefs. This builds on WCS's long history of field-based research and conservation in the marine environment, including projects in Belize and Kenya on corals, reef management and effects of fishing on reef ecosystems, and many projects on marine mammals particularly in Argentina and Peru related to growing conflicts with local fisheries. Concurrently, the development of a coral research facility in the Osborn Labs has expanded capabilities for basic research on corals.

As an important part of the COWRI program WCS is seeking to fill a new position: Scientist, Fisheries Ecology. The successful candidate will be the program manager for fish/fisheries conservation programs within COWRI. The fisheries ecologist will be responsible for WCS's efforts to conserve fish species and fisheries, will conduct scientific research and field projects related to this work, and will be WCS's representative in collaborations with other major conservation organizations focused on aquatic/fishery issues. Requirements: Ph.D. or equivalent experience in fisheries ecology or closely related field, strong modeling background, and demonstrated interpersonal, presentation and team management skills. Salary and title commensurate with experience. Send curriculum vitae, a summary statement of conservation, policy, and research interests, and references to: Director of Human Resources, Wildlife Conservation Society, Bronx Zoo, 185th St. and Southern Blvd., Bronx, NY 10460.


EDUCATIONAL MATERIALS


While the American West is experiencing rapid population growth, its native biodiversity is suffering from the westward expansion infringing on its space. Recently, the Colorado State University, Department of Fishery and Wildlife Biology, produced two videos dealing with the implications of population growth in the American West and its biodiversity.

Subdividing the West: Implications of Growth examines aspects pertaining to this most recent Western expansion. Included in this examination is a focus on the societal drives and motivations behind this rush on the land, and how the different values and perspectives are affecting western communites and cultures. Suggestions that may minimize impacts of growth on wildlife and open spaces are also discussed. Another video, 40-minutes of Saving the American West: Protecting Open Space, explores a variety of approaches being used to protect open space in the West. This video contains footage from a symposium at Colorado State University on growth and its impacts on the American West. Cost for each video is $10 to cover duplication and postage. Requests for the videos should be sent to: Instructional Services, Colorado State University, A71 Clark Bld., Fort Collins, CO 80523.
