Padma Vibhushan Dr. Sálim Ali – a legend in the world of Indian ornithology. To commemorate his birth centenary BNHS organised an international seminar on wetland and grassland bird conservation in 1996 and in addition, decided to publish a commemorative volume of articles on ornithology by his friends, colleagues and students. And so, Petronia (the generic name of the famous Yellow-throated Sparrow that connected Sálim Ali and BNHS, and in turn birding) was born. Petronia has information on interesting and intriguing behaviour patterns of birds from all across the continent.
