Australian Field Ornithology is probably more under threat due to lack of interest by potential authors of papers. The editorial board seems to be having problems obtaining sufficient material to fill the issues.

If birders want to support AFO and ensure it survives, their best strategy would be to get writing. It would be sad to see this fine little journal fade away by the simple lack of publishable material.

My greatest concern with any amalgamation is that the supergroup may dispense of one of the two journals, being Australian Field Ornithology. This journal is essential as Emu has become (is trying to become??) a journal which is really only of interest to the scientific community whereas AFO has scientific papers that are of interest to and are able to be read and understood by non-scientists, which would be the majority of birdwatchers.
