About this book

Language: Italian

This monograph is an annotated check-list of the Woodpeckers, which is a well defined and homogeneous group of birds specifically adapted to arboreal life and belonging to the monophiletic family of the Picidae. Next to the 141 colour tables by amateur ornithologist painter Pedro Cristina and by Gianluca Vicini, a concise description and a systematic ai and evolutionary introduction have been supplied.

The general introduction, which deals with morpho-physiology and biogeography, precedes the special section; a large bibliography completes this work, which constitutes a valid instrument for the study by ornithologists, naturalists and students.
