Mark B. Robbins, author of The Status and Distribution of Birds in Missouri, 2018, (available as a free download) will be our keynote speaker.
He served as ornithology collection manager at the Academy of Natural Sciences, Philadelphia for eleven years before filling the same position at the University of Kansas Biodiversity Institute until the present. He has led or co-led over 50 expeditions to foreign countries documenting avian diversity. Over 11,000 of his audio recordings are deposited at the Macaulay Library, Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology.
Mark has contributed to Missouri’s avian knowledge base since he began birding at 13. He spearheaded the establishment of the Missouri Bird Records Committee in 1987, the living repository for archiving all usual and unusual observations since the late 18th century, and which is charged to evaluate all Missouri records going forward.
