Author: Rohan Clarke
Publication Date: 01 Apr 2000
Based on Stanley Cramp's nine-volume "Birds of the Western Palearctic" and on the revised concise edition, this CD-ROM is a resource for ornithologists. The hundreds of video clips, sound recordings, colour plates, photographs, and illustrations make it both comprehensive and easy-to-use. Flexible searching techniques allow you to use the material in ways which would be impossible using the printed editions and that may save you hours of time in your research. Search and cross-reference across 9,000 pages and 600 colour plates is available in seconds. Bookmarking, notemaking, and recording facilities allow you to incorporate your own observations and quickly access the sections which are most useful to you. The CD-ROM can be customized for 6 European languages - Dutch, French, German, Italian, Spanish, and Swedish. Technological requirements are: Windows 3.1, 95 or NT and a Pentium Processor is recommended; 16Mb RAM; 4x CD-ROM drive (or faster); screen set to 64K colours at 800 x 600 resolution; and a 16 bit sound card.
