The International Journal of Waterbird Biology

Waterbirds is an international scientific journal, published four times a year, specializing in the biology, status, ecology, management and conservation of all waterbird species living in marine, estuarine and freshwater habitats. Waterbirds welcomes submission of scientific articles and notes containing the results of original studies worldwide, unsolicited critical commentary and reviews of appropriate topics.

The Waterbird Society has published results of scientific research for over two decades beginning with a proceedings of papers presented at the annual meetings from 1978 to 1980 followed in 1981 by a refereed, international journal, formerly called Colonial Waterbirds. In 1999, the journal became Waterbirds to reflect the society’s expanded focus on all aquatic birds and their habitats. The journal is produced by an editor and an international panel of associate editors and is open to submitted papers on the biology, conservation, and techniques of study of the world’s waterbirds, including seabirds, wading birds, shorebirds, and waterfowl.
