Inhaltsangabe: Some of the world's largest and most spectacular birds are to be found among this group of wading birds. Tragically, they also include many of the world's most endangered species, as changes in land use erode their wetland habitats. Some, like the White stork, have lived alongside humans for hundreds of years and are well known from numerous scientific studies. Others, like the Storm's Stork and the Ibises of West Africa, South-East Asia and South America live so secluded a life in the remote corners of the globe that they will probably be extinct before even the most basic details of their biology are known.
In this definitive monograph, three authors and two artists have combined their skills to capture what is known of these birds, and to picture them in beautiful paintings and photographs. The text opens with general chapters on taxonomy and feeding, and breeding behavior, following which, each species is dealt with in detail. Between them, the authors have personal experience of most of the species in five continents, and pay particular attention to documenting the current status of the threatened and rare species.

Key Features
* The most complete compilation available on this group of birds
* Includes stunning color plates
* Features magnificent portraits from renowned ornithological artists Alan Harris and David Quinn

Klappentext: By far the most authoritative and comprehensive work ever published on the birds of Africa. The editors and artists have worked closely with the nine authors of this volume - all internationally acknowledged experts on their bird families - to produce encyclopaedic accounts of each species. Volume IV covers the first 312 of the 1200 or so passerine species which offur in continental Africa and its outlying islands. As in the first three volumes, each breeding species receives full coverage with sections on range and status, description, voice, general habits, food and breeding biology. Non-breeding visitors to the continent are treated more briefly with a text concentrating on the birds' status and biology while in Africa. Range maps are shown for each bird and superspecies maps are given where appropriate.
Once again Martin Woodcock has done full justice to the brilliant plumages of African birds. The large plates show the birds to their best advantage or adopt a more formal, field guide style to emphasise the identification points of the more difficult groups. Ian Willis' line drawings elaborate on displays and other patterns of behaviour described in the text. The beauty and scholarship of this now standard reference on African birds must ensure its place on every ornithologist's book shelf.

Buchbeschreibung London: Academic Press, 1992., 1992. Quarto,385 pp.,colour plates, maps, fine copy in dustwrapper. This handsome monograph, with chapters on taxonomy, feeding, breeding behaviour and conservation, covers all species. In this definitive monograph, three authors and two artists have combined their experience and skills to present what is presently known about the biology and ecology of these birds and to picture them in beautiful and revealing paintings and photographs. The text opens with general chapters on taxonomy, feeding, breeding behaviour and conservation, following which each species is dealt with in detail and their known biology critically summarized. Among them, the authors have personal experience of most of these species, on all five continents. They give particular attention to documenting the status of threatened and rare species and evaluating their conservation needs. Finally, an exhaustive bibliography, assembled in cooperation with several collaborators, presents over 4000 references. It is to be hoped that, by drawing notice to both the known and unknown aspects of the biology of these species, and to the perilous situation facing them and their wetland habitats, measures may be encouraged that will conserve their populations and habitats for future generations.
