ARABIAN ORYX: A BIBLIOGRAPHY

About the publications included in that bibliography

This bibliography provides an up-to-date list of the publications on the Arabian oryx. It hopes to be as exhaustive as possible. It was started in 1997 at the NWRC and has been since regularly updated. It has greatly benefited from a bibliography on the oryx and the addax prepared in 1991 at the NWRC by Jean-Francois Asmodé, and from an interesting bibliography on the genus Oryx published by the National Agricultural Library [http://www.nal.usda.gov/awic/zoo/oryx.pdf].

Publications to which NWRC/NCWCD staff have contributed are shaded in gray, and summary can be viewed for most of them.
