All the World’s Birds Companion Guides

*** FREE eBooks *** August 18-22  Click here for details: Free ATWB eBooks

The understanding of bird species and how they are grouped into families has changed rapidly since the introduction of DNA analysis. So much so that it is difficult to keep up with all the newly identified species and revisions to interrelationships of families.

The aim of the All the World’s Birds series of eBooks is to help birders and bird lovers gain a better appreciation of these changes. Together these Kindle eBooks will provide a Companion Guide to all the world’s bird species.

To see all the currently available titles in these series, search in the Books section of your local Amazon site for ATWB. Or, click here to see all ATWB titles on Amazon US; or here to see all ATWB titles on Amazon UK.

 

Throughout the series of ATWB Companion Guides, the English names and scientific names of birds are derived 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.

The IOC bird list is updated twice a year. The version of the IOC bird list that is used in 2019 editions of ATWB eBooks is Version 8.2, published June 27 2018.
