First Meeting of the Society of
Caribbean Ornithology

The Society of Caribbean Ornithology held
its first meeting at Frederiksted, St. Croix, 20-22
May 1988. Eighty participants represented 9
countries, including the Dominican Republic,
Jamaica, Puerto Rico, the U.S. and British Virgin
Islands, St. Vincent, England, United States, and
Canada. Participants presented 34 papers, 15
posters, and 1 "video paper." The meeting was
dedicated to George Seaman in recognition of his
outstanding contributions to the knowledge of birds
and the cause of conservation in the West Indies,
The Society thanks the local organizing
committee for an exceptionally well-organized and
produenve meeting.
The next meeting of the Society will be held
in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, in mid- to
Iate Summer, 1989. A call for papers will appear in
the next issue of El Pitirre. The Society has
tentatively agreed to hold the 1990 meeting to
coincide with the Caribbean Foresters' meeting in
Trinidad.

Society to Compile List of Researchers and
Their Activities in the Caribbean

The Society of Caribbean Omithology is
compiling a list of researchers with interests in the
Caribbean Basin. Governments and individuals
throughout the Caribbean concerned with
conservation of their island resources often have
difficulty gaining access to the results of studies that
may support their activities. The Society's list of
researchers and their areas of expertise will be
available to individuals and governments in the
Caribbean as a reference guide to support local
conservation efforts. If you are currently working or
are interested in conducting research in the Caribbean
Basin, please send a description of your research
acavines and areas of expertise to Reed Bowman,
National Audubon Society, Research Department,
115 Indian Mound Trail, Tavemier, Florida 33070,
USA.


Herben A. Raffaele has announced that he is
working on two new editions of his "A Guide to the
Birds of Poeno Rico and the Virgin Islands" (1983.
Fondo Educativo Interamericano, San Juan).
Spanish and English versions of the second edition
will be published by Princeton University Press. Dr.
Raffaele will be sending the updated manuscripts to
the publishers this fall. If Society members have
correcuons, suggestions, updates, or additional
information to the first edition that they would be
willing to contribute, please contact Herb before the

Two New Journals
Vida Silvestre Neotropical is a technical
joumal for publication of high quality papers on
wildlife research and management in the Neotropics.
The first volume of Vida Silvestre Neotropical was
issued in 1987. The first two issues (volume 1)
were distributed free of charge to individuals and
Institunons interested in receiving the publication.
Starring with volume 2, the annual subsenpuon price
avill be USS6 for developing countries in the
Americas, US$12 (US518 for insmunons) for the
Uruted States, Canada, and the rest of the world,
Subscriptions and inquiries should be addressed to
Vida Sdvestre Neotropical, Subscriptions, World
Wildlife Fund, 1250 24th Street, N.W.,
Washington, D.C. 20037, USA
Conservation Biology is a quarterly
publication of the Society for Conservation Biology
an association wth Blackwell Scientific Publications,
Inc. A major goal of the joumal is to accelerate and
intensify the dissemination of conservation
technology throughout the world, and to be a forum
for exanumag Issues and problems of international
concern such as: protection of biological diversity
and genetic resources, interdependence of biological
diversity and human cultural diversity, pmlection of
threatened habitats and species, sustainable resource
use and development, and integration of the social
and biological sciences.
The first issue of Conservation Biology was
published in May 1987. While the joumal is
currently edited in English only, feature articles have
abstracts in Spanish. Other sections include
international conservation news, notes, and book
