Can you provide an update on when the IOC and Clements taxonomies will be updated? It's been almost 2 years since the last updates. Thanks
It seems as though updates have ground to a halt again. If Bird Journal is no longer going to be updated is there a way the taxonomy can be opened up to allow users to create a clone of it and edit it themselves the same way we can with taxonomies created by other bird journal users?
Sorry for the delay on this. IOC 13.2 is now available in the library as an update. Press Library > Updates then Update All to get it.
We've started work on 14.1 already so that it can be available once officially released. Corresponding checklist updates and Clements updates will follow.
If species/subspecies you have used need attention due to possible splits, lumps, etc, then on updating you’ll be prompted to review these using the desktop app. You can open the list of taxonomic update issues at any time via Tools > Taxonomic Updates. There is also a list of changes that affect species/subspecies you’ve used on the Change Details tab.
For more information on taxonomic updates see our guide: http://support.birdjournal.com/knowledgebase/articles/919095-taxonomy-updates-how-to
Please refer to IOC species updates https://www.worldbirdnames.org/updates/species-updates/, subspecies updates https://www.worldbirdnames.org/updates/subspecies-2/ and master lists https://www.worldbirdnames.org/ioc-lists/master-list-2/ if you’re not sure if a split is relevant to your records or not.
