The Bird Species / Die Vogelarten - Volume 2: Podicipediformes, Phoenicopteriformes, Mesitornithiformes, Pterocliformes, Columbiformes

An Annotated Checklist / Eine Kommentierte Liste

Published by Christ Media Natur

Second volume of the series by Norbert Bahr, where all bird species and subspecies on the planet are listed according to the latest classification. In addition to the English and scientific names, the current German species names are given for the first time in a list as comprehensive and with an information content equal to that of Peters. The texts are also in both languages throughout. The index is organised in the following way: Species and subspecies name; and for all taxa author(s), year and original publication with page reference, the original taxon name, type locality and, as already mentioned, German and English species names. The species list is deliberately published in different volumes in order to enable rapid updating to ensure that the work reflects the latest state of scientific knowledge.

The second volume deals with the the following families: Pigeons and Doves (Columbidae), Sandgrouse (Pteroclidae), Mesites (Mesitornithidae), Flamingos (Phoenicopteridae), Grebes (Podicipedidae) and Tropicbirds (Phaethontidae).
