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.

There was a fantastic response after last week?s posting of Research Directory 
Many of the researchers who responded during the week went some way to filling 
the gaps
that were identified in Update 3. There was a particularly good response from 
Northern Territory, some from NSW and yet more contributions from the ACT and 
Thanks also to those people who have urged others to contribute to the 

By 5 pm EST on Tuesday, 21 January 1997 I had received contributions from 40

Thanks also to those people who are on the e-mailing list but who have told me 
that they
did not conduct funded bird research in 1996. I still have not heard from some 
Australia?s senior ornithologists. Your contributions are just as important as 
from people who are starting their careers or completing their education.

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

· Many tertiary institutions in Victoria, NSW, Qld and Tasmania
· Government wildlife agencies in Qld, NSW and SA. Complete lists of research 
 from agencies in Victoria and Tasmania have not yet been received.
· Most state museums. Partial responses have been received from the Australian 
and WA
Museums, but I have not yet heard from other museums.
· Some CSIRO labs.
· The Biodiversity Group of Environment Australia.

I am also interested in hearing about funded projects that were conducted by 
national and special-interest bird groups. My special thanks to Mark Barter who 
made the
first such contribution last week.

It would be great if you could spend a few minutes of your time helping to fill 
gaps. I look forward to receiving information from you soon.

Kind regards,

Dr Stephen Ambrose
RAOU Research and Conservation Manager
