This volume is part of a series of books on important bird areas (IBAs) of specific states, which is an extension of Important Bird Areas in India: Priority Sites for Conservation (2004) that described 466 IBAs for India. The third book in the series, this volume focuses on the IBAs of Jammu & Kashmir.


Co-authored by six field scientists and wildlife officers, Important Bird Areas of Jammu & Kashmir is a collaborative effort of BNHS, WWF-India, RSPB, and BirdLife International. Profusely illustrated with more than 70 images showing habitats and birds and with a polygon map for each IBA, this book will help advocate for the protection of all wildlife and wild areas, as IBAs are also Key Biodiversity Areas.
