Call for papers
Submission deadline: 28 February 2021
The thematic series will focus on the functional benefits of modern telemetry to the research and conservation of birds, especially of waterbirds, in order to echo the increasing research interests in bird telemetry. Research articles based on the innovative application of avian telemetry devices are welcomed, which may include but not limited to, defining flyway structure and population status; long versus short distance migration; annual survival and timing of mortality; impacts of landscape change, weather and other factors on timing and duration of migration, etc.
Avian Physiological Ecology
Submission deadline: 30 July 2021
This thematic series will focus on how free-living birds have undergone adaptive changes in their physiology in response to selective pressures imposed by their environment to maximize fitness. We welcome any innovative research articles or updated reviews on aspects of physiological ecology. The coverage includes, but is not limited to: environmental neuroendocrinology, metabolism and thermal biology, comparative physiological ecology, etc.
