Errata to Pittas of the World

by Johannes Erritzoe. 1998, Lutterworth Press, Cambridge

tilbage til Pittas of the World

The following errata have been compiled from the reviews of the book in Acta Ornithologica, Bird Conservation Int., Bull. African Bird Club, Bull. Oriental Bird Club, Corella, Dansk Orn. Foren. Tidskr., Egretta, Emu, Gefiederte Welt, Ibis, J. Orn. and my own findings.

I want to thank Frank Rozendaal in particular for his keen eye in spotting quite a few errors and omissions. Most of the errors are merely different interpretations of geographical names from the section “Localities found in museum collections”. Geographical names present special problems to all writers, since spelling changes with time and politics and varies between, and even within one language, and maybe the greatest problem arise from transcription errors from old labels.

However, the modern names are given here for all such examples. Compare the first section on page 10 under the heading “Localities found in museum collections”, where an explanation is given of the difficulties on this head.
