Editors' Choice - Monthly Selection
Every month the Editors of Biological Conservation select one article which they consider to be a must-read article. This includes research on bushmeat trade in Africa for April, the topic of the incidental catch of seabirds during June, and how citizen science captures bird migration patterns for January.
Here on the right you can see the animated visual providing insight in to the Orchard Oriole (Icterus spurius) Migration patterns, provided by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology for the January article.
