Call for Papers: Hot Birds- Birds of the African Arid Zones

Ostrich: Journal of African Ornithology invites research papers for a special issue on the theme of Africa's arid zone birds. 

The special issue, 'Hot Birds - Birds of the African Arid Zones', will consider a wide variety of topics related to the theme. Reviews of the threats to birds of arid areas, population biology or ecology, or behavioural and physiological adaptations to hot climates will be considered, along with modelling of distributions for species considered to be climatically limited by temperature.

Dr Susan Cunningham, FitzPatrick Institute, University of Cape Town, will be the Guest Editor. 

The deadline for submissions is 15 December 2017. 

Ostrich is Africa’s leading journal of African ornithology, published since 1930. Read more about the journal, submission information and instructions for authors here.

Perhaps the most important change, in terms of bringing the Journal to a wider audience, has been its publishing in collaboration with the NISC (Pty) Ltd.

The proofs look great! Thank you so much. The efficiency of the journal now is really excellent. Easy to work with, and so thorough. I appreciate it.

Thank you for the rare experience of a set of proofs on which I can find nothing to correct!

It has been an enriching experience working with such enthusiastic and professional people at NISC who have become more friends than business partners over the years.

The NISC partnership has benefited the Indo-Pacific Journal of Phenomenology by bringing sustainability, additional branding and marketing, a wider reach through its websites, and the added value of expertise in the very competitive world of publishing.
