Ornis Hungarica

The Journal of MME/BirdLife Hungary

Ornis Hungarica is periodically published by BirdLife Hungary (Hungarian Ornithological and Nature Conservation Society). The journal publishes original research articles, reviews, and short communications. Manuscripts from all fields of ornithology are considered for publication, but the journal mainly focuses on current results about the ecology, behaviour, evolution, biogeography or conservation of birds.

The geographical emphasis of Ornis Hungarica is on Hungary, East- and Central-Europe but papers from other regions, which command broader interest, are also welcome. The journal publishes papers in English, but the summaries and the legends to figures and tables are both in English and Hungarian (for non Hungarian speaking authors a translation will be prepared by the editors).
