Alessandria, 14 - 15 November 2011
wish to invite you to the conference on Mediterranean populations of
the genus Alectoris
to be held in Alessandria the 14 and 15 of
partridges are part of the history of Mediterranean
civilizations. Their role as game birds, well documented in writings
and paintings, testifies to the long appreciation (also aesthetic!) of
these elegantly colored birds.
The Universities of Eastern Piedmont and Turin are pleased to continue this tradition of effective exchanges of expertise in Alessandria, a part of Piedmont where an ecologically important agricultural landscape hosts numerous red-legged partridge populations. The meeting will be held at the University of Eastern Piedmont "Amedeo Avogadro" in the city of Alessandria, whose Faculty of Sciences gives particular importance to environmental research.
