Association of Field Ornithologists


The Journal of Field Ornithology (JFO) is the quarterly publication of the Association of Field Ornithologists.


JFO publishes original articles that emphasize the descriptive or experimental study of birds in their natural habitats. Articles describing techniques or methodological refinements must have relevance beyond a single species or study system. Contributions are welcomed from throughout the world. JFO is especially interested in studies conducted in the Neotropics and those involving participation by nonprofessional ornithologists.


The Journal of Field Ornithology is available on BioOne through the 2005 volume. Current contents are available via Wiley.
