The Redbilled Quelea is a major pest in much of subsaharan Africa and is the bird species that has had the greatest economic impact on the continent. In consequence it is probably Africa's best studied bird species. This book becomes the definitive bibliography of the genus Quelea. The bibliography lists 1880 references. These are keyworded under a variety of headings, including "control", "ecology", "moult", "movements", "non-target species", etc.
