Proposed meeting of Dutch participants: one day in Groningen (Aweg 30) between 7 and 12 January 2005, inclusive

For the meeting of Dutch partners:
The group has a broad expertise and I think we can state that the Netherlands has a long tradition in arctic bird research. We have to discuss themes (see belowe), tasks (who is doing what), money dependencies (how much do we rely on IPY funding) and funding programmes (IPY, STW open call, NWO open call, ministery of agriculture).

Themes to discuss:
Monitoring: develop a sampling protocol, where to sample, how will analyse
Model species: barnacle geese, brent geese, pinkfooted goose, bewick’s swan
Field sites: Spitsbergen, Taymir, Petsjora
Ecological immunology
