Why AOS Now?

Thomas W. Sherry

Department of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology, Tulane University
AOS President Elect

“Both ornithology in general and AOS especially benefit from the best science, but our care about birds and their environments increasingly call for action. I am convinced that AOS can up our bird conservation game, which is part of our mission, without jeopardizing scholarship or scientific credibility, and we arguably risk credibility otherwise!”
