Publisher's Description:

The first ever Illustrated Checklist of the Birds of the World is really two works in one. It is a complete checklist whose taxonomy incorporates the most up-to-date information and an exhaustive methodology (Tobias et al. 2010) in an entirely systematic and consistent way. At the same time, it contains illustrations and distribution maps for every bird species in the world. This includes the original artwork from the HBW series, as well as hundreds of new illustrations, all in two compact volumes.


357 plates, 8,290 bird illustrations (including 242 new and 783 improved), 4,428 distribution maps, 34 full-page reference maps, 2,126 bibliographical references.
Format: 31 x 24 cm, Hardback
