Birders are infatuated with species lists, and lists need taxonomic authorities. For North America this has long been the American Ornithologists' Union’s Checklist of North American Birds. And while stability in lists generated by taxonomic authorities is desirable, birders also know that things change regularly --- from species-level taxonomy to higher level groupings, species sequences, and English names. In this webinar Jon and Kimball will explore how these changes come about. Join us for a thought-provoking discussion.
Here is a video of the talk:
