   schema:reviewBody ""This new edition has been enlarged significantly, and has benefited from the input of five regional consultants who have assisted with a thorough and rigorous reassessment of all taxonomic data. This review has led to the inclusion of many valuable new footnotes and references. In addition, the authorities for all newly described taxa (whether recognised now or not) are given with full references, for the first time in any checklist. The result is the most accurate and comprehensive checklist ever published in a single volume." "The introductory sections include an explanation of the sequence of families adopted (which is based on an invited chapter on avian higher-level phylogenetics), and a discussion of the relative attributes of the Biological Species Concept and the Phylogenetic Species Concept, which are critical to our understanding of taxonomy and related issues. Additionally, new developments in taxonomy are discussed, and areas are highlighted where it appears that a new consensus is likely to emerge in the near future. Finally, all main entries and synonyms are indexed to subspecies level."--BOOK JACKET." ;
