The concept for this volume began as a scientific symposium at the North American Ornithological Conference (NAOC) in Veracruz, Mexico in October 2006. The symposium was entitled “Avian Distributional Change, Anthropogenic Challenges, and Recent Avian Research and Technological Advances within the US-Mexico Border Region,” and was co-chaired by two of us (DJK and TB) along with Carol Beardmore (Sonoran Join Venture) and Bill Howe (USDI Fish and Wildlife Service). In light of the importance of the borderland region for birds and bird conservation, and because of the great need for additional information about this poorly studied region, we have complied this volume to present new information about bird distribution, ecology, and conservation.
