AVIAN PALAEONTOLOGICAL LITERATURE ONLINE


NEWS: Courtesy of David H. Johnson, Global Owl Project, we can present a list (and pdf:s) of the "Original literature describing the entire Order of Strigiformes (extant and fossil Genera, species and subspecies) 1758-2007" compiled by A.E. Sieradzki, David H. Johnson, Pauld Radley, Deanne P. Lewis and Fred Ruhe. Don't miss this fantastic source for information on the taxonomy of Strigiformes!

Below is a collection of links to literature on avian palaeontology freely available online. At the moment it comprises links to some 2500 papers and books and 300 abstracts. I think that it is fairly comprehensive for major sites, but undoubtedly I have missed many papers that are available on the authors' own websites.
I would appreciate information about any sites I have missed (and any dead links). Please send any corrections and additions to Tommy Tyrberg.

Note on post-1862 Google Books links

From the May 2008 edition I have started including links to sources in Google Books from the period 1863-1923. These are only supposed to be available to users in the US due to copyright reasons (actually almost all of them are in the public domain elsewhere too, but the cumbersome European copyright system requires verifying the date of death for each individual author, which is of course completely impractical for periodicals). However these papers can be accessed from outside the US by using a proxy server. I have decided against including a proxy server as part of the link in the list itself since some organizations frown upon or prohibit the use of proxy servers in their networks. Instead these links are identified by the text “(no direct access outside the US)”. In such cases you can use the “Copy Shortcut” function by right-clicking on the link and then paste the link into a suitable proxy server to access the paper.
