The list of French birds used by BUBO Listing is derived from the website of the Ligue pour la Protection des Oiseaux (LPO). The official list, prepared by the Commission de l’Avifaune Française (CAF), comprises 554 species in categories A, B and C up to the end of June 2007, and was also published in the journal Ornithos (14-4: 234-246 (2007)).

Note that 17 additional species listed for category D of the French list are not included in BUBO Listing.

Although English and latin names are currently shown as standard within BUBO Listing, the French names of each species are also included and can be viewed upon data entry by hovering the mouse over the English name. Moreover, the French names are also listed below:

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.
