A total of 48 new species of birds were described in the ten year period from 1966 to 1975. Of these 28 can be considered good species but nine of the eleven doubtful species might also turn out to be valid (6, 7, 8, 13, 18, 27, 29, 30, 31). The 28 species can be tabulated as follows: Aa New species in new genera (2): 4, 40 Ab New species not clearly members of a superspecies (14): 5, 9, 11, 14, 16, 19, 20, 24, 34, 39, 43, 45, 47, 48 Ac Allospecies (members of superspecies) (12): 2, 3, 10, 15… 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
SYSTEMATICS, EVOLUTION, AND BIOGEOGRAPHY OF THE SOUTH AMERICAN OVENBIRD GENUS CINCLODES
TLDR
The two exclusively Pacific species were positionally apomorphic within the Andean-Pacific clade; ancestral area analysis indicated that the high Andes were the most likely area of origin for this clade, and that the Pacific coast was occupied secondarily. Expand
Biogeography and composition of dry forest bird communities in Bolivia
TLDR
Overall, lowland birds gradually decreased and Andean species gradually increased with elevation, which was most pronounced in the southern Bolivian Andes; the authors found no elevational threshold of increased avifaunal turnover. Expand

TLDR
The number of undescribed new species of birds is by no means nearly exhausted, contrary to my earlier predictions, and South America seems inexhaustible and has produced almost as many novelties as the rest of the entire world. Expand
