This dataset contains observation records of marine birds as published online in the Notornis journal. Notornis is the Ornithological Society of New Zealand's quarterly scientific journal. This peer-reviewed journal has been publishing ornithological research relevant to New Zealand and the South Pacific since 1943 (originally as New Zealand Bird Notes).
Records are mainly of unusual bird reports received to the OSNZ Records Appraisal Committee (RAC) and reports of bird surveys around islands offshore of New Zealand and in the southwest Pacific Ocean.
The data in this occurrence resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 557 records.
This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.
The table below shows only published versions of the resource that are publicly accessible.
