Birds Australia produced monographs, which are lengthy scientific publications that deal with a single topic in ornithology in great detail, and they usually refer to studies on a single species, a particular suite of species or a specific region.
Monograph 1. Beehler, Bruce M., & Finch, Brian W. 1985. Species-Checklist of the Birds of New Guinea. Pp. 127.
A comprehensive checklist of the species recorded in this poorly studied region.
Monograph 2. Christidis, Leslie, & Boles, Walter E. 1994. The Taxonomy and Species of Birds of Australia. Pp. 112.
Incorporates a species list of all birds recorded in Australia and its territories, including extinct species, introduced species and vagrants, and a lengthy discussion of the taxonomy and taxonomic arguments used to explain changes to the previous accepted list. This is the standard reference for common and scientific names and the taxonomic order used by Australian ornithological journals.

Also included is a helpful introduction to the geography of the region such as rises and troughs in the ocean floor and the locations and timing of different ocean currents, as well as a discussion of the contribution of the atlas to seabird biology, and potential uses of the Seabird Atlas Database and its implications for management of the marine ecosystem in south-eastern Australia and beyond.
