Bibliography of Weavers

The aim of this project is to collect references about weavers. Many references can be used to add point locality data to the database for monitoring range changes. You can participate by sending references, especially if they are obscure or if they are very recent. Species for which there are over 1000 references as at 26 Oct 2007, are listed in the table below. A quelea bibliography was published in 2001. It contained 1880 references to quelea, mainly the Red-billed Quelea. Since then, the list of references has grown to 2778.
