Avian Biology Research Is Spreading Its Wings!

In August, two of our Editorial team will be attending International conferences. We hope to include reports from conferences in future issues of Avian Biology Research.

Dr Charles Deeming, our Editor-in-Chief, will be representing the journal on the 23–27 August 2010 at the XIII European Poultry Conference that will be held in Tours, France. The conference will include such subject matters as recent scientific findings, progress in technical experience and solutions to help the poultry industry face its future.

The XIIIth European Poultry Conference will be an occasion to demonstrate that the Loire Valley, well known for its past implication in French history and listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site, can contribute to the construction of the future of the European poultry industry.

Shortly afterward a long-standing member of our Editorial Board, Professor John C. Wingfield, will be Congress President of the XXV International Ornithological Congress to be held in Campos do Jordão, Brazil, from August 22 – 28, 2010. This will be the first International Ornithological Congress to be held in Latin America organised under the auspices of the Sociedade Brasileira de Ornitologia.

In this age of rapid global change and loss of biodiversity, scientists from all continents will discuss basic research, conservation and educational issues that are critical now and for the future. A trademark of the Congress is coverage of topics from ecology, behaviour and evolutionary biology to molecular biology and physiology, not only as individual disciplines but also in highly integrative ways. A symposium on avian genomics will provide 21st century research tools for all branches of ornithology.
