My name is James Nicholls and I am an honours student at the Australian
National University.  For my honours project I am studying the evolution of
cooperative breeding in the thornbills.  I am using DNA sequence data to
construct an evolutionary tree of the thornbill species, then having
constructed the tree I will map the occurrence of cooperative breeding onto
it.  In order to do this I need to know whether certain thornbill species
are cooperative breeders or not, in particular Inland, Tasmanian, Western,
Slender-billed, Mountain and Slaty-backed Thornbills.  So if you have
information on whether these species are cooperative or pair breeders I
would be most appreciative if you could get in touch with me.  My address
