Systematics and Taxonomy of Australian Birds presents an up-to-date classification of Australian birds. Building on the authors 1994 book, The Taxonomy and Species of Birds of Australia and its Territories, it incorporates the extensive volume of relevant systematic work since then. The findings of these studies are summarized and evaluated in the explanations for the taxonomic treatments adopted, and with the extensive citations, the book serves as a comprehensive introduction to the recent systematic literature of Australian birds.

All species of birds that have been recorded from the Australian mainland, Tasmania, island territories and surrounding waters are treated and listed. Along with extant native species, all accepted vagrants, recently extinct (since 1800) native species and established introduced species are included.

Features:
* Incorporates extensive systematic and taxonomic changes since 1994
* Includes recently extinct native species as well as established introduced species."
