New Society for Ornithology Proposed

  • PROPOSED NEW SOCIETY FOR ORNITHOLOGY--The AOU Council unanimously approved a motion to move forward with planning to form a new society, with ultimate hopes of uniting and strengthening Western Hemisphere ornithology. The plan could involve a merger of AOU and one or more other ornithological societies into a western hemisphere ornithological society tentatively named the Society for Ornithology. Four new journals are in the plans–monthly online journals and quarterly journals in paper format, with the focus varying from cutting edge basic research to descriptive ornithology and including a journal on avian conservation and management.
