This book documents the major forest, grassland and
wetland regions of Asia and the globally threatened bird species which they support. The most important conservation issues in each of these habitat regions are outlined, based upon the analysis in BirdLife's Asia Red Data Book, and recommendations are made for actions to address these issues. The role of
international and regional conventions in the conservation of Asia's birds and habitats is discussed, and the priority actions to prevent the extinction of the region's most highly threatened birds are identified. The book is illustrated with about 200 colour photographs of Asia's birds, habitats and conservation issues, plus maps of key habitats and sites for conservation.
