I was wondering if anyone has put
together a list that is in Alphabetical sequence but shows against
each species the line/sequence number for it on the
i.e. It would have been prepared by typing the
2 Brush-turkey, Australian
5 Quail, Brown
and then getting the computer to sort into
The REN (Recommended English Names) seem to have
stabilised, but the order has changed umpteen times and is well overdue for
another. In 1994 Messrs Christidis and Boles wrote that it was planned to revise
the list every 3 to 4 years !
My old brain can still remember the A to Z REN
sequence but it just clogs up trying to remember "The Order"
I guess I'm not the only one as the Field Guides
and even the Messrs Christidis and Boles 'Taxonomy' all include an
Alphabetical REN Index to obviously cater for others like me.
I would appreciate if anyone could provide
me with such a list
