The Neotropical Ornithological Society (NOS) is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the scientific study of birds and their habitats in the Neotropical Region. NOS was founded in 1987 by Dr. Mario A. Ramos Olmos. NOS disseminates scientific research though our website, our journal Ornitología Neotropical, and through the Neotropical Ornithological Congress which is a scientific conference held every four years. NOS members include researchers, research institutions, and libraries from all over the world. Please join us!
