On 24 December 1996 I called upon fellow bird researchers to contribute to the 
Directory of Australian Bird Research Projects. The closing date for 
contributions is
the 7 February 1997. From the information provided, I hope to be able to 
produce a
directory of Australian bird research projects that were conducted in 1996 for 
on the Internet by the end of February 1997. Until then, I will provide you 
with weekly
updates of who has contributed information to the directory.

Many thanks to those researchers who have responded so quickly to my request for
information. There were only a few new additions to last week?s list. By 5 pm 
EST on
Tuesday, 14 January 1997 I had received contributions from the following 

Colin Bailey (University of Adelaide)
Walter Boles (Australian Museum)
Don Bradshaw (University of WA)
Ray Brereton (Tasmanian Parks and Wildlife Service)
Belinda Cannell (Murdoch University)
Angie Chapman (University of Qld/CSIRO)
Andrew Cockburn (Australian National University)
Michael Craig (University of Western Australia)
John Dell (WA Museum)
Daniel Ebert (Australian National University)
Jody Gates (University of Adelaide}
Elsie Krebs (Australian National University)
Sarah Legge (Australian National University)
Sandra McKenzie (Murdoch University)
Graeme Martin (University of Western Australia)
Catherine Meathrel (La Trobe University)
Martin O?Brien (Victorian Department of Natural Resources and Environment)
Damon Oliver (University of New England)
Penny Olsen (Australian National University)
Angela Paltridge (University of Adelaide)
Ian Temby (Victorian Department of Natural Resources and Environment)
John Woinarski (Conservation Commission of the Northern Territory)
Stephen Ambrose (on behalf of all RAOU project officers).

As you can see, there has been a good initial response from Western Australia, 
Australia and the ACT. However, I still have not heard from many of Australia?s 
ornithologists from other parts of the country. Your contributions are just as 
as those from people who are just starting their careers or completing their 

Some of the centres of active bird research that I have not yet heard from 

· Many tertiary institutions in Victoria, NSW, QLD, Tasmania and the Northern
· Most state government wildlife agencies.
· Commonwealth government wildlife agencies (eg CSIRO, Biodiversity Group of 

I am also interested in hearing about funded projects that were conducted by 
national and special-interest bird groups. The Research Directory will only be 
useful to
people if it is as comprehensive as possible. Therefore, it would be great if 
you could
spend a few minutes of your time adding to it. I look forward to receiving 
from you soon.

Kind regards,

Dr Stephen Ambrose
RAOU Research and Conservation Manager
