The APUSlist. A Dynamic Bibliography of the Common Swift (Apus apus)


This is:


The APUSlist. A Dynamic Bibliography of the Common Swift (Apus apus)


So far I have collected about 6000 titles about the Common Swift. Some articles deal with other  species or more general ornithological problems that will help researchers to understand more about Swifts.


This bibliography is dynamic, which means that the list is far from being complete and that I add to it whenever I get notice of another article.


Many articles are not listed in the APUSlist yet. Please e-mail me every scientific article about the Common Swift you know of so that the list can become more and more comprehensive.


You will find some titles in the list incomplete. This comes from the sometimes poor information provided by the sources. If you know the correct or missing data, write me so that I can complete it.



  How to read the APUSlist.


Additions to names, like "von" in German, "van" in Dutch and "de" in French, are put behind the family names although they are used in front of them in the spoken language. As an example, you will find Antoon E. M. de Roo listed as "Roo, Antoon E.M. de" .


The “APUSlist No.” gives the number of the article in the list. This is to identify the article easily. “Source” gives the source where I found the article mentioned (I include these data in the list because it is useful to know where the article was mentioned). Some libraries ask you for it when you order a book or magazine through their long distance exchange programs. In most cases you will find a number here that is the number of the respective article in the APUSlist. You can use the search button to find it. If the source and list number are identical, I found the article without references in the library. “C&T” means that the article is from Collins & Tarburton's list (see “Sponsors”). But this will not be enough for librarians...


“Keys of contents” gives code numbers for the information in the article. I try to read every article and when I do, I note the contents using a system of key numbers. This may help you get an idea of which subjects are mentioned in the article, but you must remember that these key numbers reflect my own interests and do not catalog everything that is important. For instance, I gave a 16 (distribution) to APUSlist No. 1162 (Brazil, Mark A.) although the Swift is not mentioned in the article. Another older source, like 0097 (Meyer de Schauensee, Rodolphe) mentions the Swift in that area.


“Published in” gives the name of the magazine (with number of the volume) or book where the article is printed, followed by the name of the publisher as well as the location. If the numbers in “Page(s)” are in brackets, the Swifts are only mentioned within a longer article, usually in a list of birds.


You may find that the orthography is wrong for some articles. This is the case with names or words in languages that use special characters or different alphabets. 


Last but not least there is the "Status". This is a very personal matter. If here is a "+" added, it means that I have the article, usually as a photocopy. Since I try to collect and read every article about the Common Swift, please support me and send me copies of articles that aren’t marked with a "+" here.
