Counting terrestrial birds: use and application of census procedures in Australia

Recher, H.F. (1989) Counting terrestrial birds: use and application of census procedures in Australia. Australian Zoological Reviews, 1 . pp. 25-45.

Abstract

Reviews the history of terrestrial bird censuses in Australia, describes special problems encountered by Australian workers, and shows how counts of the terrestrial avifauna have been used to test ecological theory and develop conservation and management programmes for the continent's biota. Concludes with simple guidelines which will facilitate the use and comparison of census results between projects and localities.
