Sadly Emu has become just another avenue for prospective scientists to build 
their careers by publishing socio-biology papers, and widening the scope away 
from Australia was I think a very bad idea, one of the reasons I am not going 
to resubscribe from 2017. Ditto for Ibis in the UK where the BOU has been taken 
over by career bureaucrats and some of the founding motivations such as 
reviewing the British List are no longer considered worthwhile. The more 
general readership has been progressively excluded in both publications as 
statistics and socio-biology take over everything. Still, the money I save can 
go to some of the more toothsome bird books now emerging.
