Our Journal



The International Journal of Waterbird Biology

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 concerning the biology, conservation, and techniques of study of the world’s waterbirds including seabirds, wading birds, shorebirds, and waterfowl.

The Table of Contents for Waterbirds is available.
