famous first words; oldest written Dutch, approx. 1100AD
Have all birds started their nests
except me and you
so what are we waiting for?
This is the top (root, home) page to my web pages on bird taxonomy, as well
as a bit on EuroBirdNet Netherlands. I try my best to keep the information
contained as up-to-date as possible, but work and family life usually take priority,
as well as birding itself obviously.
Below, please find links to my EuroBirdNet pages, and pages on bird taxonomy,
including the Sibley & Monroe list.
Bird taxonomy links
- Sibley & Monroe's List of Birds of the World
(version 1993) Introduction, history, full electronic lists of species,
families, incipient species and typographic changes made to the list since
its first publication on the net.
- Bird Taxonomy, Bird Fossils and its changes.
To be used as addition to the S&M 1993 list. Overview of over 70
newly described species since 1993, over 310 splits desrcibed in the literature,
a complete, downloadable, high unofficial yet up-to-date world bird list.
And more coming, like pages that report on other taxonomic developments, such
as proposed lumps, changed generic or specific scientific names, and changes
in taxonomic ordering.
