G.P. Dementiev’s description of C. gallicus heptneri

G. Dementiew - Bemerkungen über die geographische Variation des Schlangenadlers

We would like to present a work of Georgiy Petrovich Dementiev published in 1932 in Ornothologische Monatsberichte:

• G. Dementiew, 1932 – Bemerkungen über die geographische Variation des Schlangenadlers [Comments about the geographic variations of Short-toed Eagles] // Ornothologische Monatsberichte, Bd.40, № 6, S.172-173. (De).

This work was dedicated to geographical variations of Short-toed Eagle. The Circaetus gallicus heptneri subspecies was described in the article. It is more often considered now as a clinal variation, but however the article is still of interest and therefore it has been translated to English and to Russian with help of our friends.

Publications of the Raptors Conservation bulletin

Sunday, February 28th, 2010 / Comment

Thanks to Igor Karyakin we have now pulications of the Raptors Conservation bulletin. These articles are dedicated to Short-toed Eagles or include mentions of them. The whole collection is divided into two PDFs by geographical regions:

• RAPTORS CONSERVATION. 2005-2008 – Collection of articles with mentions of Short-toed Eagle in Kazakhstan – Short-toed Eagle. file (Ru)(En) – 4.8 MB {rough translation}.

• RAPTORS CONSERVATION. 2005-2009 – Collection of articles with mentions of Short-toed Eagle in Russia – Short-toed Eagle. file (Ru)(En) – 14 MB {rough translation}.

Almost every article is bilingual, but some of them have English summary only, such as this one about Short-toed Eagle distribution in Nizhny Novgorod Region /map/:
