Hornbills show considerable variation in size. The smallest species is the black dwarf hornbill (Tockus hartlaubi), at g ( oz) and 32 cm (1 ft 1 in) in length. The largest and most massive species appears to be the southern ground hornbill which has an average weight of kg ( lb), and can weigh up to kg (14 lb) and span about cm (5 ft 11 in) across the wings.

    management and conservation, as well as the public. This journal will provide up to date information on hornbills of Asia and Africa. Submissions may include research results, field notes, conservation news and notes, aspects of hornbill ecology on wild or captive birds, opinions, commentaries, and literature reviews, including book reviews.   Hornbills, the largest birds of Asian tropical forests, are ideal flagship species. Budo Mountain supports six sympatric hornbill species, of which Rhinoceros Hornbill Buceros rhinoceros and Helmeted Hornbill Rhinoplax vigil are locally endangered. Because hornbills rely on a cavity in a large tree for nesting, the combination of forest encroachment and poaching could extirpate them from Budo.
