Mo West Prof to Lead Association of Field Ornithologists

A Missouri Western professor was recently elected as the leader of a national organization that is dedicated to studying birds both academically and as amateurs.

Missouri Western associate professor of biology Dr. Julie Jedlicka was elected as president of the Association of Field Ornithologists (AFO) at the association’s annual conference last month.

AFO is an international scientific society and non-profit organization that promotes field work and applied learning with birds among both academics and amateurs. Dr. Jedlicka previously served as vice president (2020-2022) and councilor of the organization since 2013.

AFO publishes the scientific, peer-reviewed Journal of Field Ornithology and promotes the safe use of bird banding to study birds across the globe.

The AFO has over 870 members and just celebrated its centennial anniversary.
