The Action Plan for Australian Birds 2010
This completely revised edition each account covers not only the 2010 status but provides a retrospective assessment of the status in 1990 and 2000 based on current knowledge, taxonomic revisions and changes to the IUCN criteria, and then reasons why the status of some taxa has changed over the last two decades.

The value of List Length Analysis is demonstrated to model changes in species prevalence (i.e., the proportion of lists on which the species occurs) using bird lists collected by a local bird club over 40 years around Brisbane, southeast Queensland, Australia.
Paying the extinction debt: woodland birds in the Mount Lofty Ranges, South Australia
This study identifies which woodland-dependent species are still declining in two different habitats, Pink Gum—Blue Gum woodland and Stringybark woodland, and analyses the Mount Lofty Ranges Woodland Bird Long-Term Monitoring Dataset for 1999–2007 to look for changes in abundance.
Structured elicitation of expert judgments for threatened species assessment: a case study on a continental scale using email
1. Expert knowledge is used routinely to inform listing decisions under the IUCN Red List criteria. Differences in opinion arise between experts in the presence of epistemic uncertainty, as a result…
Global Patterns and Drivers of Avian Extinctions at the Species and Subspecies Level
The finding that, when subspecies are considered, the extinction rate has accelerated in recent decades is both novel and alarming.
Biological, ecological, conservation and legal information for all species and subspecies of Australian bird
We introduce a dataset of biological, ecological, conservation and legal information for every species and subspecies of Australian bird, 2056 taxa or populations in total. Version 1 contains 230…
A behavioural ecology approach to understand volunteer surveying for citizen science datasets
The characteristics of volunteer behaviour using bird surveys conducted in south-western Australia are explored, and how volunteer behaviour affects the quantity and quality of data when volunteers are unconstrained in their selection of survey sites are evaluated.
Conservation and the 4 Rs, which are rescue, rehabilitation, release, and research
It is recommended that additional research be based on data from rescue, rehabilitation, and release of animals that is broader in scope than previous research and would have community support.
