This book represents a complete revision of the author's previous authoritative work, incorporating all the significant changes to bird taxonomy which have occurred in the last six years, and remains the only single volume work to list subspecies. Ornithologists are constantly reviewing and revising the scientific and common names of the world's birds, and lumping and splitting established species and genera. Despite the fact that opinions will continue to vary on the details of avian classification, lists such as this provide a baseline reference to scientific and English names, taxonomy and distribution for both the professional ornithologist and taxonomist and the amateur. New studies, using advanced genetic techniques, may in the next decade establish quite new systematic groupings. This list, by building on, and amending, the classic listing of Peters and his successors, may well be the last and most finely developed list in the traditional mould and hence a prime reference for years to come.
