The appearance of the first volume of a projected series is the occasion for comment on scope, aims, and genesis of the work. The scope of Current Ornithology is all of the biology of birds. Ornithology, as a whole-organism science, is concerned with birds at every level of bi- ological organization, from the molecular to the community, at least from the Jurassic to the present time, and over every scholarly discipline in which bird biology is done; to say this is merely to expand a dic- tionary definition of "ornithology. " The aim of the work, to be realized over several volumes, is to present reviews or position statements con- cerning the active fields of ornithological research. The reviews will be relatively short, and often will be done from the viewpoint of a readily- identified group or school. Such a work could have come into being at any time within the past fifty years, but that Current Ornithology appears now is a result of events that are only seven to eight years old. One important event was the initiation in 1975-1976 of the Workshop on a National Plan for Ornithology, under the directorship of James R. King and Walter J. Bock, cosponsored by the American Ornithologists' Union and the Na- tional Science Foundation. Part of the Workshop's interests lay in pub- lications resources, and certain kinds of information on publications were obtained by means of a questionnaire.
