What is the presently accepted scientific definition of the word "endemic" when applied to (Australian) bird species? I have read of several variations recently and am confused - found only in that country, breeds only in that country, originally (when?) found only in that country!!
Also, where do I locate the presently accepted list of Australian endemics?
Finally, what is the best source to read about the original "discoverers" of Australian species - people other than Gould, like Latham, Vieillot, Temminck et al?
