"The Editors have asked me to write a few words on the curious species of Bulbul which Lieut. C. H. T. Whitehead has lately named after Major H. A. F. Magrath (see Whitehead, Bull. B. 0.C. xxi. p. 48 (1908) j id. Ibis, 1909, p. 114). Thanks to Lieut. Whitehead and Major Magrath, the British Museum contains an ample series of specimens of the Bulbuls which have served for the interesting essay they have written on these forms."

Field-Notes on the Birds of Southern Kamerun, West Africa

2 colour plates (Caprimulgus batesi / Parmoptila woodhousii): J.G. Keulemans

Ibis: Volume 51, Issue 1, pages 1-74

1909

Opening lines:

"These notes form a supplement to the series of papers on my birds by Dr. Bowdler Sharpe, who has given to my collections much of their value by his account of them. They would have fitted in well with his papers, but it was impossible to publish them in that way, not only because they were not prepared in time, but also because many of the facts now given were not ascertained till long after I had sent home the specimens of the birds referred to. The information here given has beeu gathered slowly, during a number of years."

On some rare Species of the Genus Larvivora from China

Ernst Hartert

Colour plate (Larvivora ruficeps): J.G. Keulemans

Ibis: Volume 49, Issue 4, pages 621-623

1907

Opening lines:

"Easy as it is to define the area of the Palearctic faunal region in some parts - as, for example, in the west, where the Sahara (especially as its interior is not yet zoologically explored) forms a most convenient boundary, and between Tibet and India, where the enormous chain of mountains called the Himalayas effects a natural separation, - this becomes very difficult in other countries, and, in fact, most intricate in China, where, at least in the more eastern parts, no sharp line of division exists at all. Every addition to our knowledge of the interior of China is therefore extremely welcome. Much has been lately added by Messrs. La Touche, Styan, and Rickett, who have written valuable articles in the recent volumes of 'The Ibis'; but much more remains to be done."

Ibis: Volume 49, Issue 4, pages 570-464

1907

Opening lines:

"The Pectoral Sandpiper (Tringa maculata) was first noticed by me on the 29th of May, 1905, at the earliest appearance of the Arctic spring, as I was slowly making my way with tired and hungry dogs from the Great Baranoff Cape westward to the mouth of the Kolyma, on the sea-ice. It appeared in flocks of from twenty to forty individuals, flying swiftly in one continual line from the east, uttering a somewhat harsh call, 'twee, twee, twee,' or 'teelee, teelee, teelee,' or, when alarmed, 'teer, leer, leer, lee'."

1907

Opening lines:

"Our indefatigable friend Mr. G. I. Bates has sent some further collections from Camaroon, which, as will be seen, contain examples of many interesting species. The series from the Zima Country did not turn out prolific of new species, but that from the River Ja has proved of considerable importance, particularly in the re-discovery of the beautiful Diaphorophyia ansorgei of Hartert, of which only the single type specimen from Angola, now in Mr. Rothschild's museum, was known."

1907

"Although the greater portion of the high veld of Gazaland is now included politically in Mashonaland, under the name of the Melsetter District, from a scientific point of view, and from the view of the natives, Gazaland (the country conquered at the commencement of the last century by Mauikusa and his Zulus - the Aba-Gaza constitutes a very distinct district, characterized by the irruption of many trans- Zambezian forms and in parts by its richer and more varied vegetation."

Miller, to make an excursion into the Syrian Desert beyond Damascus, for the purpose of collecting specimens of the mammals and birds of that little-known district. They went from Beyrout to Damascus by railway, on February 15th, 1905, and on the 18th made a short excursion to Hejana, a small village about four hours' drive from Damascus, situated at the edge of the desert, but surrounded by cultivated land. Here they stayed nearly a week collecting birds (which included Saxicola finschi, Linota cannabina, &c.) and hunting gazelles in the desert; after which they returned to Damascus."

A Revision of the Species of the Genus Pipra

C.E. Hellmayr

Colour plate (Pipra exquisita): J.G. Keulemans

Ibis: Volume 48, Issue 1, pages 1-34

1906

Opening lines:

"The characters of the genus Pipra of Linnaeus (Mus. Adolph. Frid. ii. Prodrom. (1764) p. 22), the type of which, by elimination, is Pipra aureola, are too well known to be repeated here. Mr. Sclater, our latest authority on the subject, admits eighteen species, besides one subspecies. While I quite agree that P. filicauda, P. cornuta, P. iracunda, and P. cinnamomea ought to be separated generically, it seems to me that two more species, viz. P. gutturalis and P. leucorrhoa, should be excluded from the genus Pipra."
