A total of 51 new species of birds were described in the ten year period from 1956 to the end of 1965. Among these, 35 can be considered good species. They can be arranged in four groups: Aa New species in new genera (2): 11, 49 Ab New species that are not clearly members of a super-species (13): 3, 9, 10, 15, 17, 21, 22, 27, 31, 35, 38, 43, 46 Ac Rather distinct allospecies (member of superspecies) (10): 1, 4, 5, 7, 20, 28, 40, 41, 47, 50 Ad Allospecies which some authors would consider merely… Expand
New species of birds described from 1966 to 1975
TLDR
A total of 48 new species of birds were described in the ten year period from 1966 to 1975 but nine of the eleven doubtful species might also turn out to be valid (6, 7, 8, 13, 18, 27, 29, 30, 31). Expand
New species of birds described from 1976 to 1980
A total of 18 species of birds was described as new in the five year period from 1976 to 1980. Of these, 12 can be considered good species (but three doubtful species [2, 6, 17] might well turn outExpand
A lost world in Wallacea: Description of a montane archipelagic avifauna
TLDR
Five new songbird species and five new subspecies found on a single small island near Sulawesi, Indonesia, over a single 6-week expedition are described, suggesting that humans’ understanding of biogeographically complex regions such as Wallacea remains incomplete. Expand
The application of species criteria in avian taxonomy and its implications for the debate over species concepts
  • G. Sangster
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Biological reviews of the Cambridge Philosophical Society
  • 2014
TLDR
There is a discrepancy between widely held perceptions of how species are delimited and the way species are actually delimited by taxonomists, and no support was found for the idea that Phylogenetic Species Concepts have caused a change in the ‘nature’ of species taxa. Expand
Ernst Mayr—Intellectual leader of ornithology
TLDR
Although Mayr was not the originator of the biological species concept, he demonstrated its validity more convincingly than anyone else before and proposed a superior and concise definition of the biospecies which everybody adopted. Expand

ON THE VALIDITY AND CONFUSED IDENTITY OF SERPOPHAGA GRISEICEPS BERLIOZ 1959 (TYRANNIDAE)
TLDR
The validity of S. griseiceps is re-evaluated by examining the type series and specimens deposited at the Museo Argentino de Ciencias Naturales (Buenos Aires, Argentina) and the own field data from Cochabamba, and by critiquing Straneck's taxonomic conclusions. Expand
Reinforcing the foundations of ornithological nomenclature: Filling the gaps in Sherborn’s and Richmond’s historical legacy of bibliographic exploration
TLDR
To make solid the foundations for ornithological nomenclature and taxonomy, especially for synonymies, ornithologists will need to collaborate much more and contribute to the digital infrastructure. Expand
