The Migratory Landbirds Study Group (MLSG) – a concept launched at the 2013 conference of the European Ornithologists Union – is a new initiative with links to the African-Eurasian Migratory Landbirds Action Plan (AEMLAP).

After an inaugural meeting in March 2014 in Wilhelmshaven, Germany, a working group and board was established. One of our aims is to establish this website as a means to facilitate research, knowledge exchange and capacity building in the field of migratory landbird studies across the Palearctic-African and Palearctic-Asian flyways.

The groups aims are to:

  • Maintain contact between both amateurs and professionals studying migratory landbirds;
  • Help organise international co-operative studies;
  • Provide a vehicle for exchange of information on migratory landbirds and their biology;
  • Promote scientific capacity building throughout the flyway (especially in Africa).

Additionally, by building on existing linkages with the CMS and AEMLAP, the MLSG will support a conservation-based research agenda, including through facilitation of collaborative and interdisciplinary studies across the Africa-Eurasia flyway.
