Bird Families of the World

  • Bird Families of the World is a multivolume series of handbooks, intended to serve the interests of both the professional scientist and the ever-growing body of amateur ornithologists. Each volume provides a comprehensive and accurate synthesis of our knowledge of one bird family or several related families
  • 5 general chapters on the biology, feeding ecology, breeding behaviour, evolutionary relationships, and conservation of the birds in the family
  • 12 specially commissioned colour plates by Andrew Mackay, showing adults of all species and many juveniles, immatures and subspecies
  • 159 black-and-white drawings by John Busby, illustrating special features and behaviour
  • Descriptions of each individual species, including appearance, weights, and measurements; field characters; voice; habitat and food; breeding behaviour; life cycle; and range and status (with distribution map). This provides the most comprehensive and up-to-date species-level information available
