The hornbills : Bucerotiformes by A. C Kemp( Book )

10 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Hornbills is a comprehensive treatment of all 54 species of these fascinating birds. They are an Old World family, found in sub-Saharan Africa, the Indian Subcontinent, and throughout southeast Asia and Indonesia to Papua New Guinea. Birds of the forest, their diet is mainly fruit and insects, and they have large, distinctively shaped bills which of course give them their name. They are also known for interesting social behaviour and nesting habits." "Alan Kemp first introduces the hornbill group in seven chapters, illustrated by two colour plates of hornbill habitats and nest sites and many line drawings. These chapters give an overview of the family, summarizing a wide range of literature and describing all facets of hornbill life with a wealth of examples. They combine a readable style with the author's scientific grasp of his subject." "Then follow the 54 species accounts, each one giving a complete description of the bird in its natural state. This information has been gleaned from the literature and the author's own research in Africa and Asia." "Complementing the species accounts are twelve superb colour plates by Martin Woodcock, showing the birds in all their variations at rest and in flight."--Jacket

Birds of the Indonesian archipelago : Greater Sundas and Wallacea by James A Eaton( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first ornithological field guide covering the vast chain of the Indonesian archipelago, with over 2,500 illustrations, describes all 1,417 bird species known to occur in the region, including 601 endemics, 98 vagrants, eight introduced species and 18 species yet to be formally described. Together these represent over 13% of global bird diversity. In addition, all subspecies from the region are described. The guide fully encompasses the biogeographic regions of the Greater Sundas (Sumatra, Borneo, Java and Bali) and Wallacea (Sulawesi, the Moluccas and the Lesser Sundas), plus all satellite islands. This region spans an arc of over 4,000 km along the Equator, including Brunei, East Timor, the Malaysian states of Sabah and Sarawak and most of the territory of the Republic of Indonesia. The authors' vast experience and knowledge of the region's birds brings together the latest taxonomic insights, knowledge of distribution, field identification features, vocalisations and more to create an indispensable reference for anyone with an interest in the avifauna of this fabulously diverse region

Nightjars and their allies : the Caprimulgiformes by D. T Holyoak( Book )

5 editions published between 2001 and 2008 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nightjars and their allies are a curious, fascinating, and remarkably varied group of birds. This largely nocturnal group has many adaptions for nighttime activity and they are found almost throughout the world. Until now the literature available about the Caprimulgiformes has provided little discussion of evolution and adaptive radiation within the order. This book rectifies those omissions in a comprehensive account." "The 118 species accounts contained in this volume provide details of coloration, moults, geographical variation, body measurements, geographical ranges, habitats, food and feeding, behaviour, voice, breeding, and conservation. These are all backed up by a comprehensive bibliography. More general introductory chapters review evidence of the group's evolutionary history and also place the birds' distributions, ecology, behaviour and physiology in an evolutionary context." "All the species are illustrated in 23 colour plates painted by Martin Woodcock. He has also contributed text drawings that illustrate behaviour and other features."--Jacket

The birds of Africa( Book )

4 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Universally recognized as by far the most authoritative work ever published on the subject, The Birds of Africa is a superb reference with encyclopedic species texts, stunning paintings, detailed line drawings, and comprehensive bibliographies. This is the sixth volume in a set of seven, follows the standard taxonomic sequence and deals with songbirds from the babblers to starlings. A new introduction brings the reader up-to-date with recent developments in the series and includes an essay on aspects of biogeography illustrated through African birds. Overviews of the families are followed by genus summaries (with associated superspecies maps, where appropriate) and the species accounts themselves, organized under standard heading: Range and Status, Description, Field Characters, Voice, General Habits, Food, Breeding Habits, and Key References. Each species has a distribution map and many are illustrated with line drawings by Ian Willis showing nests and behavior. There are 36 superb color plates by Martin Woodcock that illustrate all the plumages of all species covered in the volume. Full references to written and sound recorded material complete this authoritative coverage."--Bloomsbury Publishing
