State of the world's birds 2013

Over the last decade, the BirdLife Partnership has worked to assess the condition and trends of the world’s birds, thereby gaining invaluable insight into the wider state of biodiversity. Drawing on a uniquely deep and broad data set and using innovative analysis, State of the world’s birds is designed to make science-based evidence available to national and international policy and decision-makers.

This publication—launched in 2013 at the BirdLife World Congress in Ottawa, Canada—presents a summary of the results of this remarkable collaborative enterprise.To watch the presentation at the BirdLife World Congress given by Alison Stattersfield click .
