We use the Checklist of Birds of Kazakhstan from the Birds of Kazakhstan website. Taxonomically this does not agree entirely with the latest more official authorities such as IOC and Clements, but it seems to be the locally preferred checklist to use.

Either select the species to add by first selecting the authority to copy it from, then the particular species, or enter a new species directly below.

NB: Likely authorities hard-coded for now, but dropdown should ideally be restricted to parents of current authority only.

If selecting from another authority, you can still update the information below before adding the species.

NB: Species name is defaulted from the previous species row and should of course be overwritten!.

NB: Genus is defaulted from the previous species row but may need overwriting; specific needs to be entered in either case.

NB: Species id will be taken from the corresponding species on the authority being copied from, otherwise enter 0 for a totally new species.

NB: Need a way to enter a new family if required.

NB: Notes only allow up to 255 characters, but there is no enforcement of this. Anything longer will be truncated without warning.

Delete species

NB: Species name for the old taxon should be updated to differentiate it from the split taxa using a '/' or '[group]', e.g. Species A/Species B or Species A [group].

NB: Scientific should also be updated similarly, e.g. Genus specific A/specific B or Genus specific A [group].

NB: Split species must previously have been added through Add Species. Currently allow for split into 5 species.

NB: Ideally this should be done through a species lookup rather than direct entry of id.

NB: Notes only allow up to 255 characters, but there is no enforcement of this. Anything longer will be truncated without warning.

NB: Species name for the old taxon should be updated to differentiate it from the split taxa using '[lumped]', e.g. Species A [lumped].

NB: Scientific should also be updated, using '[lumped]' or brackets for the old specific name, e.g. Genus specific [lumped] or Genus [specific] subspecific.

NB: Lumped species must already exist.

NB: Ideally this should be done through a species lookup rather than direct entry of id.

NB: Notes only allow up to 255 characters, but there is no enforcement of this. Anything longer will be truncated without warning.

Apply Taxonomic Updates

This will update all user lists according to the edited taxonomy and should only be done when all edits are complete.
