About this book

Wildfowl is an international scientific journal, published annually by Wildfowl Press, and previously published by the Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust (from 1948–2020). It disseminates original material on the ecology, biology and conservation of wildfowl (Anseriformes) and ecologically associated birds (such as waders, rails and flamingos), and on their wetland habitats.

Issue 72 of Wildfowl is particularly wide-ranging in its coverage. It not only includes the keynote paper on the history of the International Waterfowl and Wetlands Research Bureau (IWRB) but also a review of the distribution and conservation of Far Eastern Curlew, insights into the movement patterns of diving ducks Aythya sp. in western Europe and an analysis of Pacific Black Duck Anas superciliosa feeding activity in relation to their energy requirements during wing moult. The two wetlands-orientated papers – on the Adıyaman-Gölbaşı Lakes important bird area (IBA) in Turkey and the Porbandar wetlands in western India – both build on the IWRB’s earlier initiatives, in utilising data gathered as part of the International Waterbird Census (IWC) and the Asian Waterbird Census (AWC).
