INTRODUCTION

With the exception of the Eurylaimidae, all the families in this volume have been monographed since 1923 and 1924. It is difficult to realize that more than 25 years have elapsed since the master orni- thologist, C. E. Hellmayr, revised the Furnarioidea in a manner that fundamentally will stand the test of time. At the same time, Hellmayr’s sound work provided a firm foundation upon which sub- sequent ornithologists could build with confidence. The extensive zoological explorations conducted in South America since the appear- ance of Hellmayr’s volumes have greatly increased the ornithological knowledge of this continent, as attested by the numbers of new forms that have been named during the last quarter century, resulting in an increase of approximately 300 over the number of forms listed by Hellmayr.

In view of the thoroughness of Hellmayr’s work, it does not seem necessary in this volume to list synonyms published prior to the appearance of his respective volumes; thus the system inaugurated in earlier volumes of the present series of listing synonyms since the appearance of Sharpe’s Hand-list has been modified as far as the Furnarioidea are concerned, though still adhered to with the Eury- laimidae. The few names omitted by Hellmayr have been inserted; likewise any form recognized by that authority but subsequently relegated to synonymy has been cited in its proper place in order that the name may be accounted for.

It does not seem advisable to maintain the subfamilies of Fur- narioidea maintained by Hellmayr. They are insufficiently defined and grade into one another to such an extent that no clear line can be drawn to separate them.

The manuscript of the present volume was largely completed prior to the publication of the detailed Official Record of the decisions in relation to the amendment of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature taken in Paris in July 1948 by the Thirteenth Inter- national Congress of Zoology. I have therefore not been able to

vi INTRODUCTION

comply with the resolution adopted by the Congress advising zoolo- gists to guide themselves in the work by the Official Record of the Paris decisions in anticipation of the actual publication of the revised Code. In the Introduction to Volume VI, I stated that in that volume I was continuing the common, but incorrect interpretation of the expression “indication” as applied to generic names published prior to 1 January 1931, on the grounds that the question of liberalizing the expression was even then scheduled to be acted upon at the Congress. The liberalization having been effected at that time, the use of generic names used in this volume is in conformity with the decision adopted at the Paris Congress.

The manuscript was finished about 1 August 1950; all new forms named up to 31 July have been included, but none have been in- cluded which have been described since that date.

For loan of necessary material, I am indebted to the authorities of the American Museum of Natural History; U. S. National Museum; Academy of Natural Sciences, Philadelphia; Carnegie Museum and Chicago Natural History Museum. To Messrs. James Bond and R. M. de Schauensee, I extend my thanks for manuscript of their papers on South American birds in advance of publication. For information on specimens in collections under their care, for verify- ing references in publications not available in the vicinity of Cam- bridge or for countless favors and helpful suggestions, I am indebted to Mr. E. R. Blake, Mr. James Bond, Dr. J. P. Chapin, Mr. R. M. de Schauensee, Dr. Herbert Friedmann, Mr. T. E. Gilliard, Mr. J. C. Greenway, Jr., Count Nils Gyldenstolpe, Dr. Ernst Mayr, Dr. Edgardo Moltoni, Mr. W. H. Phelps, Dr. Olivério Pinto, Dr. A. L. Rand, Dr. Erwin Stresemann, Mr. W. E. C. Todd, Dr. Alexander Wetmore, Dr. J. T. Zimmer.

The manuscript was typed by Mrs. Earl Bowen and Miss Ruth Inman; the Index was prepared by Mrs. Bowen. Mrs. Peters ren- dered much valuable assistance with the proofreading.

Assistance which in part made possible the publication of this volume has been rendered by Mrs. W. W. Naumburg, Mrs. Carll Tucker, Mr. W. H. Phelps, and Mr. R. M. de Schauensee, to whom grateful acknowledgement is made.
