In celebration of Emu Austral Ornithology’s 120th birthday, the Editorial Board has compiled a virtual special issue, which highlights key contributions to austral
ornithology across the journal’s history. Editorial Board members were invited to identify and contribute a few words on some key papers. Consequently, we
highlight some of the published gems that have shone in 120 years of Emu Austral Ornithology, discuss their scientific significance and why their publication has shaped austral ornithology. It was a challenge to select only a few outstanding papers from 120 years of the journal’s history. To celebrate the importance of the key papers that we have selected (marked with an asterisk), they are provided free to access for a period of time.
