About this book

&i;Birds of the Bangkok Area&o; is the most thorough account ever published of the avifauna of Thailand's Lower Central Plain (Lower Chao Phraya Delta). Comprehensively listing all birds found, 237 species are treated in full biological detail, and illustrated.

This book highlights the Bangkok area's surviving freshwater and coastal habitats, Thailand's most important and extensive wetlands, of continued international conservation significance despite their proximity to a megacity. Drawing widely on historical and contemporary sources, the book describes how changing land use has affected the bird fauna, identifies shortcomings in national conservation policy, and outlines conservation needs.

The text is augmented by 48 colour plates, a detailed map and gazetteer of all localities mentioned in the text, and a list of key birdwatching sites.
