HBW and BirdLife International; Illustrated Checklist of the Birds of the World; Volume 1 Non Passerines HBW and BirdLife International; Illustrated Checklist of the Birds of the World; Volume 1 Non Passerines   layout image

edited by Josep del Hoyo / Nigel J Collar / David A Christie / Andrew Elliott / Lincoln D C Fishpool

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. Illustration type: Colour illustrations, 800pp. 2014

DUE EARLY SEPTEMBER 2014.
