Recent classifications of Australian birds have been limited to lists of "species" which are inadequate as biodiversity indicators. The Directory of Australian Birds: Passerines fills a huge gap in…

- 15 March 2017
This work presents, through analysis of a comprehensive set of data and demand forecasts, an interdisciplinary perspective on how best to ensure ecologically viable continuity of global mineral supply over the coming decades.
A revised nomenclature and classification for family-group taxa of parrots (Psittaciformes)
- L. Joseph, A. Toon, Erin E. Schirtzinger, T. Wright, R. Schodde
- 24 February 2012
A framework of three superfamilies among parrots (Strigopoidea, Cacatuoidea and Psittacoidea) within which Linnaean taxonomy can accommodate present phylogenetic understanding by employing groupings at the ranks of family, subfamily and tribe is advocated.

Relationships within the Australo-Papuan Fairy-wrens (Aves : Malurinae) : an Evaluation of the Utility of Allozyme Data
- L. Christidis, R. Schodde
Allozyme variation at 39 presumptive loci was screened across 180 specimens representing 18 species of Australo-Papuan fairy-wrens and confirmed several previously accepted lineages, and identified surprising new links between several taxa as well.
From Commodity Discovery to Production

Major resource discoveries have transformed growth prospects for many low-income countries. However, the sharp downturn in commodity prices in recent years is affecting resource investment in these…
Biochemical systematics of the Australian cockatoos (Psittaciformes : Cacatuinae)
- M. Adams, P. Baverstock, D. Saunders, R. Schodde, Gt Smith
Isozyme electrophoresis of the loci examined in this study could not differentiate members of the Calyptorhynchus funereus superspecies, nor of the Cacatua tenuirostris-pastinator group of corellas, and the results are therefore in accord with other studies that show that isozyme electophoresis has limited application in elucidating species boundaries in birds.
