Biographical / Historical
The British Trust for Ornithology is an independent charitable research institution which carries out research into the lives of birds, chiefly by conducting population and breeding surveys and by bird ringing. It was founded in the 1930s in Oxford by Edward Max Nicholson, among others, with the aim of fostering cooperation in birdwatching to inform conservation.
Material has been arranged firstly by subject of study, and then by the theme of the contents of each file.
