About this book

Based on the latest palaeontological knowledge, this special issue of the Japanese magazine Birder contains an encyclopedia of extinct birds.

● History of birds
Which organis was the ancestor of the birds and did the dinosaurs go extinct. From the Mesozoic to the Cenozoic, this issue explains the reasons for the prosperity, decline, and extinction by considering groups and representative species that symbolize each region.

● Extinct Birds Encyclopedia
There was a great bird diversity in the past. From the genus Diatryma (now known as Gastornis), the giant raptors Argentavis, to Dodo – from fossil species to birds that disappeared after the birth of mankind!

● Extinct Japanese birds
