Dear all,


As Australian birders are well informed on Samoa, Tonga, Tuvalo, Gilbert 
Islands, Marshall Islands, Mariana Islands, Austral Islands, Tuamoto Archipel, 
Marquesas and Norfolk Island, Tahiti, Fiji, New Caledonia I think this is the 
best place to ask this question. In what papers or books can I find the 
ornithological history of these places up to roughly 1820? I only find very few 
works that cover ornithological exploration of these parts of the world.  I’m 
also looking for a source/paper that covers the Natural History of Timor. 

Any publications covering these subjects would help enormously. Please reply 


Thank you very much,


Justin Jansen
