NIAS Research Seminar: Birdwatching in Japan
February 2, 2016 - 13:15-14:15
Birdwatching is a serious hobby with elements of science, sports and leisure. Based on two months’ visit to Japan, Stig Toft Madsen reports on birdwatchers, their equipment, “twitching” and messaging services, mechanisms for screening sightings, the institutional set-up in the voluntary sector, the relation between academic ornithologists and non-academics, overseas birders, international networking and tourism, and the role of the imperial family.
Time: 2 February 2016, 13:15-14:15
Venue: NIAS Meeting Room, Øster Farimagsgade 5, DK-1353 Copenhagen K, Denmark
