It is not a simple decision for BirdLife Australia to adopt a new taxonomy. I believe that BARC has recommended that BA adopt a "living" taxonomy, and has suggested the IOC rather than the BirdLife International taxonomy. BA has many projects such as the Atlas. It is quite a big task to change the taxonomy for projects such as that. It is not something that you want to do every 3 months or so when the IOC issues an update. Even annually. It is not just a case of reprinting forms.

Surely Australia isn't the only country that has projects such as the Atlas. How do other countries that use the IOC taxonomy cope with the regular updates?
