The Birds of the Phillipines

£20.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

This book is in very good condition. The spine is faded and there is a neat inscription on the FEP. Otherwise very good.

It includes the following appendices:
1. List of acronyms used for museum names
2. Gazetteer
3. List of collectors
4. List of Maps
5. List of tables and figures


The twelfth Check-list in the British Ornithologists' Unions' series deals with an important zoo geographical area lying between the extensive Oriental Region, with its many Palaearctic passage migrants, and the Australasian Region. There has been no comprehensive review of the Philippine avifauna since McGregor's definitive 'A Manual of Philippine Birds (1909-10), which has formed the baseline for any subsequent compilation of records and discussion of South-East Asian ornithology.

This Check-list, bringing together a more comprehensive range of data than has been possible for 80 years, is based on an unusually extensive museum and literature search, and includes a great many substantial unpublished records. Distribution and taxonomy of the 556 recorded bird species and their habitats are given prominence, and in particular breeding data are invariably given when any are known. Errors from earlier years, often repeated many time since, are pointed out and corrected.
