Country checklist and status



We are delighted that our Corporate Sponsor iGoTerra has made its country checklists, including subspecies (IOC or Clements) as well as all other species groups like mammals, butterflies etc. available through the ABC website. The only thing required is a Basic membership / registration which is free of charge. Go to Mali checklists. If you are already a member of iGoTerra, you will be taken directly to the country page. In case you are not a member, you will be redirected automatically to the registration form and from there can go straight to the country page.

ABC and other checklists

You can download and print an ABC / Dowsett checklist for Mali. The ABC lists follow the taxonomic sequence and names of Birds of Africa Volumes I-VII and are kept up to date with published and peer-reviewed records.

Work was underway as of May 2004 to produce an accurate list. All records are welcome that could contribute to a better knowledge of the occurence of birds in Mali. Send records to Mary Crickmore at the address noted in the contacts section.
