    host We will screen individually ringed birds and compare infected animals with uninfected or medicine treated animals over a wide variety of species and study spatio temporal variation This variation will be linked to environmental changes like pollution global warming and habitat loss Piersma Animal Ecology University of Groningen post doc position Full proposal as pdf here Contrasting breeding investments in a small arctic shorebird trade off between breeding effort and fighting disease Small shorebirds breeding in the High Arctic have very high thermoregulatory and incubation costs Sanderlings Calidris alba are known to have a breeding system in which females sometimes lay two clutches of four eggs The first clutch being incubated by the male the second by the female herself The advantage for double clutching indivliduals is obvious a higher reproductive succes However this breeding strategy also entails substantial costs for both parents First the female has to lay an additional set of eggs soon after having laid a first complete clutch Secondly two birds have to separately take care of the incubation of a clutch and chick guarding In the proposed research we wish to investigate the possible relation between immune response and breeding effort at a study site in Northeast Greenland with a known Sanderling population that shows both the single and the double clutch strategy We hypothesise that Sanderlings might be able to make such large investments in reproduction by economising on their immune system in the relatively parasite and disease poor High Arctic environment Only high quality birds that are free of parasites are expected to be able to down regulate their immune system In their wintering habitat in Western Europe and especially tropical Africa Sanderlings scavenge between decaying organic material and need to maintain high levels of immunity The contrast in breeding strategies within a single Arctic bird species enables us to gain knowledge on fundamental questions about disease risk and immune function of Arctic shorebirds that spend part of their life in Western European marine habitats and may yield important information on the spread of diseases by migratory birds Klaassen NIOO Nieuwersluis PhD student Full proposal as pdf here Arctic breeding waterfowl as vectors for avian influenza viruses Influenza virus IV outbreaks form a major threat to human and animal health and the economy Various data indicate that Arctic breeding migratory waterfowl notably geese and swans are a reservoir and vector for IV With its dense human population extensive pig and chicken farming with increasing outdoor ranging its many shallow water bodies that attract migratory waterfowl in unparalleled numbers The Netherlands form a European hot spot for influenza outbreaks in poultry and potential transmission to man For risk reduction early recognition and management of outbreaks the proposed multidisciplinary research initiative will provide critical knowledge on 1 what species of Arctic breeding waterfowl are carriers of avian IV and how this correlates with specific ecological features of the species 2 the spatial and temporal variation in IV prevalence among these species 3 which individuals

    while we still keep the EOI s as units for which we seek national funding My project 61 BIRD HEALTH is listed as a potential lead project I can only see a potential for clustering when we combine all studies on birds Why me Working at the Arctic Centre in the Netherlands which aims at coordinating research 5 out of 11 bird EOI s originate from the Netherlands I am Dutch representative in CAFF and able of organizing a webforum see https loonen fmns rug nl ipy although at present not fully functional due to a program update on the webserver Time is short What is the plan Keep the original EOI s but make an umbrella proposal which focus on the unique nature of bird studies to access the changing environment In this way we are trying to survive the next round for the international IPY committee If it works we can use this in our applications for national committees for which we keep more to the original EOI s The umbrella project will be managed as a forum on a website Contributions can be used by all of us to improve our own EOI s Only after EOI
