DescriptionTen years have elapsed since the first International Owl Symposium was held in Winnipeg. The number of topic species was expanded from 22 (1987) to 61 (1997) and the topic was broadened from owls of the northern forest to those of the northern hemisphere. The number of studies reported expanded from 38 studies (mean = 5.76 years for study period duration) to 101 studies (mean = 4.89 years per study). Fifteen species were reported on in 1987 and 17 species in 1997. The Northern Saw-whet Owl (Aegolius acadius) was the most reported species in 1997 and the Boreal or Tengmalm's Owl (Aegolius funereus) in 1987. A plea is made for more research on owls in lesser-known parts of the World and for conferences to call attention to those parts of the World where research is being conducted or needed.
