    About the Author


    Ali Salim, ,Dillon Ripley, au


    Salim Ali (1896-1987), the Grand Old Man of Indian Ornithology, was among the first Indians to conduct systematic bird surveys in the country. His books have contributed enormously to the development of professional and amateur ornithology in India.


    S. Dillon Ripley (1913-2001) was an American ornithologist and wildlife conservationist. He developed a lifelong interest in birds after a trip to India at the age of 13. He obtained a Ph.D in zoology from Harvard University in 1943 and later served as Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution for 20 years.

From two world-renowned ornithologists, Ali and Ripley's Handbook remains one of the most important reference work on the birds on India and Pakistan, along with the adjacent areas of Nepal, Bhutan and Sri Lanka. This ten-volume set presents the life history information, taxonomy, colour pictures of practically every species, of birds in one of the world's richest birdlife regions.
