Birds are adapted to a diverse range of habitats, and operate within a broad range of dietary niches. This diversity of life histories has resulted in an equally varied suite of adaptations for acquiring mates, finding food, avoiding predators and for navigation. In this meeting, a distinguished list of international researchers encompassing avian vision, taste, olfaction, geo-magnetic sense, nociception (pain), tactile sense, and emotion, will be brought together to discuss new and emerging evidence of the evolution, development, mechanisms and function of avian senses.
