About this book

Language: Portuguese, with English, Portuguese and scientific nomenclature and checklists with English and scientific names

This book brings together 523 species of birds, including about 350 that also occur in the Amazon and 450 that occur in the Cerrado. They are illustrated in color, and described with scientific name and vernacular names in English and Portuguese, and explanatory texts on the characteristics of each species – body shapes and plumage, size, weight, habitat, diet, sociability, behavior, and status, whether they are resident or migrant, nest type, and geographical distribution in other regions of Brazil and the Americas. By having a simple text without technical terms, the book is directed both to the general public – students, tourists and lovers of nature – as well as teachers and scientific experts in biology and ecology of birds.
