dc.description.abstract Red data sheets are provided for 102 species of birds that breed on the South African mainland and a further six species for the oceanic Prince Edward islands. Species are listed according to the established IUCN criteria of extinct, endangered, vulnerable, rare, out of danger or indeterminate. Each data sheet is accompanied by a list of published sources and most by a distribution map. Of the 108 species, two are judged to be locally extinct and five have been allocated to the endangered category, also on a local basis. Twenty one species are vulnerable, 44 species rare, one species out of danger and 35 species are as yet indeterminate. Indications of past research effort and of future needs in both research and conservation management are provided, together with a comprehensive rare species bibliography. en
