International Wader Studies
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. 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 email the back issues address.
