Studies in Avian Biology
in Avian Biology is a book series for publication of
longer works in ornithology. The long-running series has
been produced by the Cooper Ornithological Society for 25
years with 45 volumes published since 1978. The standard
format for volumes in the Studies
in Avian Biology series is a set of 10-25 contributed
chapters organized around an important topic in ornithology
such as new areas of research or techniques, ecologically
important habitats, or management of species of conservation
concern. Recent volumes have focused on emerging
questions in avian disease, the ecology of urban birds, and
applications of video surveillance to studies of bird
behavior. Studies of arctic shorebirds, boreal forest
birds, and northern grouse have contributed to a better
understanding of the ecology of birds in sensitive
ecosystems. The series publishes award-winning science -
recent volumes on Greater Sage-Grouse and Northern Spotted
Owls received publication awards for contributions to wildlife
conservation and management. Each volume is guest-edited
by a team of 1-3 volume editors who select and coordinate
submissions of manuscripts from contributing authors.
All manuscripts undergo rigorous peer review and acceptance of
individual manuscripts is based on scientific merit.
Ideas and new proposals for new volumes of Studies in Avian Biology
can be submitted to the Series Editor at any time.
