Dear NADS a소셜그래프ttendees:

As part of a special session on Wednesday morning on "Strengt소셜그래프hening the Links Between Waterfowl Research and Management", organized by Tony Roberts, we소셜그래프 are present소셜그래프ing a paper on the Challenges and Opportunities of App소셜그래프lied Research in Academic Institutions.  As we have been preparing this talk, we realized that there is a wide range of opinions, and a소셜그래프 paucity of data. Accordingly, we thought it m소셜그래프ight be informative to survey the NADS audience for your perspective. To do so, we h소셜그래프ave developed 2 short surveys usi소셜그래프ng Google Forms.

The first "Muddy Boots and Ivory Towers” addr소셜그래프esses some of the main questions we will explore in our talk, regarding the concern that there has been erosion in the ca소셜그래프pacity to conduct applied waterfowl research in academic institutions. It comp소셜그래프rises 22 multiple choice, 소셜그래프check-box questions. It should not take more than 5-10 minutes.소셜그래프

The second shorter surve소셜그래프y is intended to gain a broader sense of ho소셜그래프w we value research and the need for research in specific areas. It co소셜그래프mprises 12 questions.소셜그래프 Should take about 5 minutes.

These are all unofficial and intended only to provide some 소셜그래프audience feedback for the session.  However, if this proves in소셜그래프teresting and useful, we are considering a more formal an소셜그래프d systemati소셜그래프c survey in the future. The survey i소셜그래프s anonymous , we don’t ask personal questions (other than your general affili소셜그래프ation/position) and you are 소셜그래프free to answer any or none of the questions.  We will be happy 소셜그래프to share the r소셜그래프esults (as a general summary).

We will accept resp소셜그래프onses throughout the conference, but will need to have a소셜그래프ny responses that could be included in the talk by T소셜그래프uesday afternoon.

The links are b소셜그래프elow. Please let us소셜그래프 know if you run into p소셜그래프roblems (jmeadie@ucd소셜그래프avis.edu).

We hope you 소셜그래프have a chance to take the two surveys and소셜그래프 find them interesting.
