Dear OBers,

A new Checklist of Birds of China is available online on 1 March 2010. Editing by the editors of China Bird Report book series, this list contains 1408 species that has occured in China. All species are given scientific, English and Chinese names. It is the first checklist which adaptes the framework of the IOC World Checklist and absorbs several
recent splits, new records and taxonomic changes, which reflects the
recent phylogenetic and taxonomic works on Chinese birds. Appendix
with species lists that distributes in Southern Tibet, Tianshan and
Nansha Archipelagos are also available. This checklist will also play as the framework for the future publication of China Bird Report series.

The list is available at
cbrchinabirdlist/. Comments and remarks are welcome.

China Bird Report Editors
 Liu Yang, Wei Qian, Dong Lu & Lei Jinyu,
