Index of vernacular and scientific names
English vernacular names indexed here are for the most part those used in this book for species or larger groupings. Vernacular names for subspecies as well as alternative vernacular names for species are included only if they are in general usage or have been referred to in the text discussions. Plates and figures are identified by number, and pages containing major discussions of each species are indicated by boldface.
Scientific Names: Names indexed here are restricted to those of subspecies, species, or larger groupings of galIinaceous birds mentioned in the text. Technical names of other animal groups and plants are not indexed. Entries shown here are for the major page references; the index to vernacular names should be consulted for secondary references and references to illustrations.
