Moose conference

Dr. William Faber, a natural resources instructor at Central Lakes College, Brainerd, is on the organizing committee of the 45th North American Moose Conference June 23-26 in International Falls, Minn., and Central Lakes College is one of 14 co-sponsors of the event. Faber is the chairman of a two-hour conference session June 24 entitled “Thermal Management and Moose Ecology.” Presenters will discuss research about moose in southern New England coping with high temperatures, as well as a climate and range study of female moose in southern Norway, heat stress in northern Scandinavia, and a high-density moose population in Alaska. The conference also will address climate change and forests in Minnesota, moose populations in Ontario, Wyoming, and Minnesota, moose parasites and research in Voyageurs and Isle Royale national parks. Over 100 participants from across the globe are expected to attend, Faber said. Several will come from Scandinavian nations. Faber spent 13 years in Sweden and elsewhere in Europe researching moose while earning his doctorate before joining the faculty at CLC. Information is available at www.nrri.umn.edu/moose2010
