IOC 2.3 Home » content

The upgrade to International Ornithological Congress taxonomy 2.3 was quite an ordeal. I first wanted
to do the changes manually, but they were too many, and I eventually regenerated the database from
scratch. So I was able to upgrade to IUCN Red List 2009.2. Here are about half of the name changes, but there were just as many splits and joins. IOC uses umlauts, or German accent characters, which I don't agree with.
