I often refer to HANZAB but frequently take the wrong one of the shelf
first. With the plastic covers they stick together and eventually that
creates excess use. Yes I know bird groups well but tend to forget the
sequence (which is after all largely arbitrary in terms of arranging orders
and some families mainly within the Passeriformes) in a linear sequence. The
spine says bird groups X to Y as end points but those in between those X & Y
groups can be hard to recall. I haven't found in HANZAB and wonder if
someone has done a one page list of the main groups (e.g. families) as
listed in each volume, that I can copy and tape on my bookshelf?


Hi Philip,

You could always photocopy the combined index at the end of the last book. There is both a Latin index including order, family, species, etc., and a five-page English index with all species, volume and page(s). The English index is from page 1980 to 1984 in Volume 7B. Alternatively, you could scan the index and edit it down to one page, including only families.
