Since the Covid situation in Europe is very unstable at the moment and nobody can predict when we are back to normal, the Local Organizing Committee (LOC) and the Scientific Program committee (SPC) of the European Ornithologists’ Union have decided to postpone the 13th EOU Meeting planned for September 2021 in Giessen.
After ten years of work, the results of the second European Breeding Bird Atlas EBBA2 are now compiled in a book. The book is the most up-to-date source of information on distribution, abundance and change of bird populations in Europe. A tremendous effort by the European Bird Census Council and its partner organisations from 48 countries have made it possible.
The IOCongress® has convened every four years since 1884, bringing together the world’s ornithologists to share state of the art research. It reconvenes in Durban, South Africa, in 2022, after another successful congress in Vancouver, Canada, in 2018 with over 1200 delegates.
