British Ornithologists' Club
The British Ornithologists' Club (BOC) was founded in 1892 to promote discussion between ornithologists and to produce a journal, their Bulletin, which has been published continuously since that year.
The objectives of the Club are the promotion of scientific discussion between members of the BOU and others interested in ornithology, and to facilitate the dissemination of scientific information concerned with ornithology. The club has a special interest in avian systematics, taxonomy and distribution.
The club was founded at a meeting of 15 members of the British Ornithologists' Union (BOU) on October 5, 1892. Philip Lutley Sclater was appointed as the first Chairman and Richard Bowdler Sharpe was appointed as editor of the Bulletin.
