IOC ANNOUNCES SEMIANNUAL REVISION SCHEDULE

The ‘All the World’s Birds’ series of Companion Guides derives its taxonomy, English names and scientific names from The IOC World Bird List, an open access resource maintained by the International Ornithological Congress (IOC). The IOC bird list is hosted on a dedicated World Bird Names website, which provides access to the list in various different formats.

Until 2017 the IOC bird list was updated fairly regularly at three-monthly intervals. On October 21 2017 the IOC announced that from 2018 onwards the list will be updated semiannually, and that there will be no Version 7.4.

Hence, the version of the IOC bird list that will be used in the ‘All the World’s Birds 2018’ series of Companion Guides is Version 7.3, published July 31 2017.

As a result of this change, the first volumes in the ‘All the World’s Birds 2018’ series of Companion Guides have been able to be published earlier than originally planned. The first two volumes to be released are:

 

All the World’s Birds 2018: A Companion Guide
PART ONE: Ostriches to Anhingas, Darters

All the World’s Birds 2018: A Companion Guide
OCEANS
