Taxonomic part and onomastics
In the flood of systematic changes that are taking place in scientific spheres, we had to decide between different taxonomic divisions.
Most of them are included and already upgraded by the Wildlife Recorder programme. The list of observed species can be changed with regard to the selection of taxonomy. We were able to choose between: Clements (The Clements Checklist of Birds of the World, 6th Edition, Cornell University Press), HBW (Handbook of the Birds of the World, Lynx Edicions), Howard & Moore (Howard and Moore Complete Checklist of the Birds of the World, published by Christopher Helm), and IOC (IOC World Bird List, Version 2.2).
The sequence of birds (Anseriformes, gallinaceous birds, divers ...), which is used in this part, has also been adopted by EU members states. It was initially presented by Dutch ornithologist K. H. Voous (1977), and is already used by some general works as well.
The species dealt with in this part are classified after the sequence any systematic divisioning in »The Clements Checklist of Birds of the World, 6th Edition, Cornell University Press).
Slovenian names were taken from »Prispevek k slovenskemu ornitološkemu imenoslovju in imenotvorju« / A contribution to the Slovene ornithological terminology (Jančar, 1999).
