Companion to "" A Contribution to the Distribution and Taxonomy of Afrotropical and Malagasy birds "" The systematic list includes species listed by family and subfamily, with references to the treatment used, the numbers of species in the relevant family accepted by the authors to occur in the Afrotropics and Malagasy regions, those in the world's total for the family, and the number of Afrotropical or Malagasy endemics and near-endemics. The page numbers for the appropriate distribution tables follow. Next, the scientific name is given, complete with authority, synonyms, references to taxonomic justifications, the relevant page numbers of texts such as Birds of Africa (listed as BA1-4), Harrison (1985) (H), Langrand (1990) (L), Roberts (R) or Mackworth-Praed and Grant's handbooks (PG). The English and French vernacular names, references to tape recordings, and a code for the species in the form of a reference number complete the entries. Species thought to form a superspecies are bracketed.
