Quality The RIS may be the largest collection of literature on birds of
prey found anywhere in the world, with approximately 30,000 references
on raptor biology and management. RIS staff members regularly update
the files and accompanying data base with recently published and/or
newly acquired references on raptors. The collection includes reprints
of published papers as well as a significant amount of "gray
literature" in the form of popular articles, theses, dissertations,
unpublished government reports, and progress reports.
