To date, the SCO-SOC has issued one Special Publication - a series of manuscripts on the "Biology and Conservation of Forest Birds".

This Special Publication, issued in 1999 and edited by A.W, Diamond and D.N. Nettleship, is a series of manuscripts arising from a symposium at the 1996 SCO-SOC meeting in Fredericton, NB.

The entire publication is available here (warning: file is ~3 MB)

Also, the articles are available as pdf's below; click on the page numbers.  These pdf's are image-based (non-searchable) with low resolution (to reduce file size).
