It's probably a safe bet that there is a certain
amount of ornithological research activity in
South America too.  Wikipedia lists seven
ornithology journals for that continent - only
one less than for Australasia and the Pacific
(but of course it has missed out on Canberra Bird Notes!)

'Ostrich' is also published in southern
hemisphere (S Af) and focuses on birds in this hemisphere.

Ostrich: Journal of African Ornithology

 Ostrich is an international journal that
publishes papers in the general field of
ornithology in sub-Saharan Africa and its
islands. The results of studies on the
behaviour, biology, breeding, ecology,
migrations and movements, and systematics of
birds are published.

created a complete digital archive of Emu

Of interest to some...this from a CSIRO Publishing email. Robin Hide

The Emu flies into Cyberspace

Birds Australia has created a
digital archive of Emu ?
Austral Ornithology, back to the first issue in
1901 ? an invaluable resource for all those
interested in Australian birds and the history
and social significance of ornithology in this unique environment.

Until now, Emu has only ever been available to
those lucky enough to be able to mine reference
library archives or to have their own set of
bound volumes. The opening up of the digital
archive means ornithologists around the world
will be able to access a wealth of scientific
information on the unique birdlife of the
region, as well as stories of social
significance from early expeditions and meetings of
the Royal Australian Ornithologists? Union.

The archive offers insights into the development
of a conservation consciousness in Australia,
rare sightings of endangered and some
now extinct species, observations by early field
naturalists of the effects of fire, floods and
drought, as well as the changing nature of
ornithological research and the social history of bird watching in the region.

Forty-seven volunteers from Birds Australia?s
extraordinary and dedicated volunteer network,
led by Stephen Garnett, have spent five years
collating paper archive copies and scanning and
formatting the 8851 articles published since 1901.

Emu, the premier journal for ornithological
research and reviews in the Southern Hemisphere
is published by CSIRO PUBLISHING on behalf of Birds Australia.

Subscription and online access to Emu is
available to individuals through
Australia, and to libraries and interested
institutions from

of historical significance will be available
free of charge throughout 2008, and are accessible from the Emu website.
