Description

In this Checklist, a modern, broad version of the Biological Species Concept (BSC) has been applied, with the aid of the scoring system to evaluate differences in morphology, vocalisations, ecology and geographical relationships published in Ibis by Tobias et al. (2010). For the non-passerines this has resulted in relatively few lumps (21) but a much higher number of splits, 461 in total at the time of writing, compared with the taxonomy presented in the HBW series. Groups with major changes in species numbers included.
