There was a thread a while ago about scientifc journals not using capital 
letters for bird names.  At the time there was a lot of criticism of the 
American journals for adopting this policy.  I note with interest that the 
latest edition of Australian Geographic has an article on birds that also does 
not use capitals.  This is apparently a world-wide(?) problem.
