Taxonomy used in EcoRegistros for BIRDS



The task of keeping sheets for the various species generated the need to choose a taxonomy to use. The difficult task of choosing between the different positions that are now in science has led to a detailed analysis for each case. The evolution of species is very difficult to understand and no one has the absolute truth, that is why we believe that for some cases, certain sources are most appropriate and other cases are other sources. This module explicitly leaves the taxonomy used in EcoRegistros lists.

EcoRegistros used as a priority for South America the proposals of the South American Classification Committee (Remsen et al., 2017), and for the rest of the world BirdLife International (Checklist Version 9.0). In turn, there are a number of exceptions where alternative sources or prioritize adopt BirdLife International, and we call as "EcoRegistros Exceptions".
