A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

This is the 5th of the multi-volume series designed to provide the first comprehensive account of all the species of birds in the world. It covers from Barn-owls to Hummingbirds. Each chapter, headed by a summary box, deals with a different family, and it is subdivided into sections: systematics; morphological aspects; habitat; general habits; voice; food and feeding; breeding; movements; relationship with man; status and conservation; a general bibliography and detailed species accounts. The species accounts include names in French, German and Spanish, in addition to scientific and English names. Each species features taxonomic notes; subspecies and distribution; habitat; food and feeding; breeding; movements; status and conservation and a selected bibliography. 406 striking photographs illustrate unusual features, such as courtship behaviour, thermoregulation or feeding techniques. It includes 76 colour plates, 758 colour distribution maps, and 8000 bibliographical references.
