There are 53 living species of these small- to medium-sized parrots. Lories, as this group is collectively referred to, are native to many small tropical island chains located in the south Pacific ocean (Fig. 1), such as Indonesia and Polynesia, and many species are also found on the bigger islands of Australia and, especially, New Guinea (Papua New Guinea and Irian Jaya).

    Ornithology is a zoological science that studies those creatures belonging to the Class Aves, much better known as birds. Birds, the only vertebrates that have feathers, are generally divided into two major groups. Ostriches, Emus, Dodos and Kiwis are ratites, birds that lack that conspicuous keel-like extension on the breast bone and lack the ability to fly. The vast majority of the birds, however, are non-ratites and possess the keel to which the powerful muscles that power the wings are attached. All-in-all, there are over 9200 extant species of birds divided into 30 orders and 174 families. Their ability to fly has allowed them to colonize every land mass on earth including the Arctic and Antarctic and some, like the Penguins, have adapted an aquatic lifestyle coming to shore only to breed and raise young. Fossil evidence of the ancestors of modern birds indicates that they were contemporaneous with dinosaurs. Indeed, evidence is mounting that these feathered creatures are in fact the highly evolved living incarnation of the terrible lizards. This long evolutionary history has allowed for the development of the many unique morphological, physical and behavioral attributes in birds that make the science of ornithology such an interesting vocation.

    The Journal of Field Ornithology is the quarterly publication of the Association of Field Ornithologists. The Journal welcomes original articles that emphasize the descriptive or experimental study of birds in their natural habitats. Articles depicting techniques, emphasizing conservation, describing life history, or assessing published studies or existing ideas are appropriate. The Journal is especially interested in field studies conducted in the neotropics and those involving amateur participation. Articles describing techniques or methodological refinements must have relevance beyond a single species or study system. ONLINE ABSTRACTS INSTRUCTIONS TO AUTHORS EDITORIAL ASSISTANCE
    Manuscripts should be submitted in quadruplicate to the Editor: Charles R. Brown, Department of Biological Sciences, University of Tulsa, Tulsa, OK 74104-3189, U.S.A . The Journal does not yet accept electronic submissions. A cover letter should include the title of the paper, a statement that the paper (as a whole or in part) has not been published or submitted for publication elsewhere, and the name and address for the subsequent 6 mo of the corresponding author (be sure to include a telephone number and e-mail address, if available).
