ISWE welcomes carefully prepared abstracts reporting new basic, applied, or methodological-related research findings concerning wildlife endocrinology, with emphasis on non-invasive and minimally invasive sampling technologies used to address questions applied to adrenal function, reproductive physiology, animal health, ecology and evolution. The Topics for this conference include: Methodologies, Reproduction, Stress, Animal Health and Welfare, Aquatics, Misc..
Submit your abstract in time via the new ISWE abstract submission website at http://www.iswe-endo-abstracts.org .Please note that each author will need to create a username and password for the entire revision process. All abstracts will be revised for scientific merit and content by two reviewers of the scientific committee. Decisions made on acceptance, acceptance after revision or rejection of an abstract, the type of presentation and/or program session will be sent out via e-mail at the latest by May 19th.
Our Mission is to advance the field of wildlife endocrinology by promoting stronger inter-disciplinary collaboration among wildlife and conservation biologists to optimize animal health, reproduction, and welfare in support of global conservation efforts.
Our Vision is to provide an international forum that facilitates the exchange of information and development of collaborative wildlife endocrine studies. To help advance the use of non-invasive and minimally invasive sampling technologies and assist in the standardization of methods and analyses for the scientific study of wildlife physiology both in situ and ex situ.
ISWE Members have access to WEIN, a web based, searchable data network containing information on endocrine methods and analyses including sample type, sample processing, hormone assays (EIA and RIA) and endocrine results on various domestic and wildlife species both in situ and ex situ. The database allows the sharing of information regarding endocrine monitoring in a given species. The database is a reference place for endocrinological techniques and species based information. The goal of WEIN is to become the primary resource for researchers worldwide to learn, analyze, and share information about the growing field of wildlife endocrinology. WEIN provides a venue for techniques and relevant data creating a critical resource for people interested in zoo and wildlife health and conservation. read more >
