A message from the WOS Publications Committee:
Organizers of the WOS annual meeting in Santa Fe, New Mexico (July 17-20), are currently seeking proposals for symposia, sets of talks organized around a topic of interest. The WOS Publications Committee wishes to invite symposium participants to submit manuscripts based on their talks for a special section in an upcoming issue of The Wilson Journal of Ornithology. The deadline for proposing a symposium is February 1, 2022. We encourage those that are planning to give a talk at the meeting to reach out to their colleagues and consider organizing a symposium and possibly a coordinated set of papers in our venerable journal.
We are excited to already have one symposium planned on research and conservation of birds in New Mexico. Other topics that would be sure to attract considerable interest from meeting attendees and readers of the WJO include:
- Nesting ecology of passerines
- Neotropical-Nearctic migration/stopover
- Hybrids and hybridization
- Nest-box studies
- Long-term population studies
We look forward to the possibility of meeting in person in July and to the continuation in 2022 of our 134-year practice of publishing the work of our ornithological community.
