This second edition includes an accompanying CD-ROM with a searchable electronic database. This new edition also features more complete coverage of the world's avifauna as well as expanded coverage of birds of South America, Japan, China, Africa, and the Pacific Islands. In addition, the order of species and families has been revised in the text to fit with the latest publications in avian taxonomy and systematics.

Media reviews
! contains a vastly increased dataset. Not only does it include more than 2400 additional species, but many of the data for species that were included in the first edition have also been updated, increased or improved in some other way. ! a mine of information for many research workers. It now includes data on some 88% of the world's species -- a fantastic achievement both by the author and by ornithologists in general. --Christopher Perrins, in The International Journal of Avian Science (2010)
