The Birds of Africa

Fry, C Hilary; Keith, Stuart; Urban, Emil

An authoritative reference work that numbers eight volumes. It covers all breeding species in full, with details of range, status, description, voice, general habits and breeding; non-breeding visitors are treated more briefly, with emphasis on their status and behaviour whilst in Africa. Extensively illustrated with large format colour plates by Martin Woodcock. Includes full bibliographies, acoustic references and indexes of English, French and scientific names.

Volumes 1 to 7 in this series were originally published by Academic Press (volumes 1-6) and Christopher Helm (volume 7) between 1986-2004. The final volume, volume 8, was published in June 2013 and covers the Malagasy region. At the same time, Christopher Helm has reprinted all previous volumes, some of which have been out of print for years, with new ISBNs. Please note that these reprints do not contain any new content.
