International Wader Studies

Share this page on Facebook
Formerly Special Issues of the Wader Study Group Bulletin, International Wader Studies is a series of volumes dealing with the ecology of particular shorebird species, habitats, ecological systems or conservation issues. Many have been the result of IWSG conferences, symposia or workshops.
IWS issues are generally issued free of charge to all IWSG members. Printed back issues of IWS and earlier Special Issues are available for sale, priced £15 including postage, or £10 when collected at the Annual Conference.
If you would like to purchase a copy please send an email with the details.
