Migrant Landbirds Study Group

Name: Migrant Landbirds Study Group
Acronym: MLSG
Website: http://migrantlandbirds.org/
Geographic Scope: International
Biogeographical Realm: Afrotropic, Palearctic
Description: The Migratory Landbirds Study Group (MLSG) – a concept launched at the 2013 conference of the European Ornithologists Union – is a new initiative with links to the African-Eurasian Migratory Landbirds Action Plan (AEMLAP).

The groups aims are to:
  • Maintain contact between both amateurs and professionals studying migratory landbirds;
  • Help organise international co-operative studies;
  • Provide a vehicle for exchange of information on migratory landbirds and their biology;
  • Promote scientific capacity building throughout the flyway (especially in Africa).
Additionally, by building on existing linkages with the CMS and AEMLAP, the MLSG will support a conservation-based research agenda, including through facilitation of collaborative and interdisciplinary studies across the Africa-Eurasia flyway.
