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 out to be valid): Aa New species in new genera (2): 7, 18 Ab New species not clearly members of a superspecies (3): 9, 13, 16 Ac Allospecies (members of a superspecies) (7): 3, 4, 8, 10, ?11, 12, 15 New species in new genera (2): 7, 18 New species not clearly members of a superspecies (3): 9, 13, 16… Expand
AVIAN BIODIVERSITY: HOW MANY SPECIES AND SUBSPECIES OF RECENT BIRDS EXIST(ED)?
The basis of any biological science must be knowledge of its component taxa, their characteristics, relationships, and distributions. Birds, often relatively large, con­ spicuous, and diurnal, offerExpand

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
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
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
ANO GEOGRAPHIC VARIATION IN LONG-TAILEO HERMIT HUMMINGBIROS , THE PHAETHORNIS SUPERCIL / OSUS-MALARIS-LONGIROSTRIS SPECIES GROUP ( TROCHILIOAE ) , WITH NOTES ON THEIR BIOGEOGRAPHY
Long-tailed Hermit hummingbirds can be assigned to three closely related, probably monophyletic species: Phaethomis superciliosUs, R malaris, and R longirostris. R longirostris is limited to CentralExpand
Biogeography, geographical variation and taxonomy of the Andean hummingbird genusMetallura GOULD, 1847
TLDR
The south-north phenotype progression regarding chin and gorget coloration of M. tyrianthina females, paralleled by a transition from weak to strong sexual dimorphism, suggest for the genusMetallura a centre of origin in the Andes of north-eastern Bolivia or south- eastern Peru. 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

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

The Superspecies Concept
TLDR
It is proposed that brackets (= square parentheses) enclose the first named species of a superspecies, or Bubo [bubo] virginianus to indicate that the species virginianms is a member of the Superspecies Bubo (bubo). Expand
