A Supplement to Distribution and Taxonomy of Birds of the World: Supplement
Distribution and Taxonomy of Birds of the World was published in 1990 and named best bird book of the year by British Birds magazine. Written by two eminent ornithologists, the book is a taxonomic listing of 9,672 living species of birds, with details of the geographic range of each species. The accounts of the species are arranged according to a new classification developed by the authors in collaboration with Jon Ahlquist. In this supplement to Distribution and Taxonomy of Birds of the World, Sibley and Monroe update their original material, presenting changes in systematics that they have noted through May 1992, including a change in the total number of living species to 9,702. The supplement is keyed to the original volume by page number.
