Location: San Juan, Puerto Rico

The American Ornithological Society (AOS), Para la Naturaleza, and BirdsCaribbean invite you to a joint meeting of our Societies. This will be the 140th annual meeting of AOS.

Following our long legacy of vibrant annual meetings, the 2022 conference will once again offer a great opportunity for sharing and discussing scientific research in all areas involving birds.

We envision a broad discussion of research that spans the breadth of modern ornithology through plenaries, symposia, workshops, roundtable discussions, contributed papers, and posters. In addition to these exciting presentations, we will have a variety of exhibitors from the commercial, non-profit, and government sectors. We will also host a series of daily, fun networking events for you to make new connections and reconnect with colleagues!

Don’t forget to mark your calendar for this meeting!

About the American Ornithological Society


The American Ornithological Society (AOS) is an international society devoted to advancing the scientific understanding of birds, enriching ornithology as a profession, and promoting a rigorous scientific basis for the conservation of birds.  As the largest ornithological member-based society in the world, AOS produces scientific publications of the highest quality, hosts intellectually engaging professional meetings, serves ornithologists at every career stage, and informs public policy on issues important to ornithology and ornithological collections.  

The AOS is distinguished by its tremendous collective expertise, including eminent scientists, conservation practitioners, early career innovators, and students.

AOS publishes two international journals—Ornithology and Ornithological Applications. The Society’s Checklists are the official source for taxonomy and nomenclature for North and South American birds. The AOS is also a partner in the online publication of Birds of the World with the Cornell Lab of Ornithology.
