Special Issue Journal of Raptor Research

The Journal of Raptor Research is planning a special issue on the topic of banding and movement ecology in raptors. Papers presented at the RRF 2010 conference special symposium on banding will be published together as a special issue in December 2011. Topics include banding of nestlings, long-term population monitoring, banding trends, band resightings, and banding alternatives like satellite telemetry, GSM transmitters, and geolocators. The banding symposium and special JRR issue were organized by Keith Bildstein (Hawk Mountain Sanctuary) and Bruce Peterjohn (USGS Bird Banding Lab).
