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 another fantastic response after last week?s posting of the Research 
Update. Yet more gaps in information that were identified in the update were 
Researchers scattered throughout Australia responded to Update 4. Thanks also 
to those
people who have urged others to contribute to the directory.

By 5 pm EST on Tuesday, 28 January 1997 I had received contributions from 50

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.

Time is running out for the receipt of information for the directory. I may
inadvertently not have the e-mail addresses or fax numbers of everyone who 
research on Australian birds in 1996. Therefore, I have a special plea to 
everyone who
reads this message to ask/remind colleagues who are not in the above list to 
contributing information to the directory.

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

· Many tertiary institutions in Queensland and Tasmania. I am also waiting for 
researchers in a few NSW and Victorian universities to respond.
· Government wildlife agencies in Qld and NSW. Complete lists of research 
projects from
agencies in Victoria, Tasmania and South Australia have not yet been received.
· Some state museums, especially in Queensland and South Australia.
· 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. I would especially like to hear from 
the Bird
Observers Club of Australia, Australian Bird Study Association and the major 
bird groups.

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
