Biodiversity Research Institute (BRI) is now the agent for the Association of Field Ornithologists' Avinet Research Supplies company. Association of Field Ornithologists (AFO) and BRI are pleased to continue the work of Avinet Inc., providing the highest quality mist nets and field equipment to biologists, ecologists, and "wildlifers" everywhere. As of March 2017, AFO's existing Avian Research Supplies business has merged with Avinet operations, inventory, and website. The new name is Avinet Research Supplies (ARS) and became official in February 2019.
At this time of transition we would like to recognize the efforts of Brian Harrington at AFO, Jennie Robbins at Manomet Center for Conservation Sciences, and Mary Beth Wright of Avinet Inc. for over 30 years of consistent management and service to the research community.
