In 2007 an important seminar was organised to discuss the conflicts and the controversies related with vulture feeding and foraging behaviours, artificial feeding of vultures, and the impact of the new EU sanitary regulations on vultures. Those were times when the new EU laws imposed to deal with the mad cow and the foot and mouth diseases, requiring compulsory removal of all carcasses from the fields, and their incineration, were causing a dramatic change in age-old traditions in Iberia of leaving dead cattle in “muladares”. Things have improved since, with new regulations allowing for carcasses to be left on the ground in some areas and/or in some special conditions, but the papers gathered in this seminar still constitute some of the best science ever on this important topic. The publication – a 500 page volume both in Spanish and English – can now be freely downloaded from here
