Dear Friends,

Regarding my earlier post requesting some information from various recent
books dealing with Albatrosses, I have received a number of very helpful
replies, for which I am exceedingly grateful.  Unfortunately, none of the
people who replied had a copy of Brooke (2004).   I have been able to access
parts of Brooke (20040) on Google Books.  It has a table of contents, from
which it is clear that there is no chapter or specific section devoted to
taxonomy.  There is also an example of an entry, for Antipodean Albatross
Diomedea antipodensis.  In this,Brooke discusses only why he treats
D.gibbsoni as a subspecies of D.antipodensis, but says nothing there about
why he treats D.antipodensis as a species distinct from D.exulans.  I am
guessing if he discusses this relationship anywhere, it would be under
D.exulans. So if anyone has a copy of Brooke (2004) could you please tell me
what he says about taxonomy under D.exulans?

Many thanks,


Dr John Penhallurick
