The first issue was produced in January 1853 and Cabanis noted that although there were specialist journals in entomology and conchology that there was nothing to deal with ornithology in Germany. Among the first essays published in the journal was an essay by Reichenbach on the concept of species.[1]

According to the Journal Citation Reports, the journal has a 2012 impact factor of 1.632.[2]
