About this book

Language: Chinese with scientific nomenclature

The Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden of the Chinese Academy of Sciences is located in Xishuangbanna Prefecture, Yunnan Province, China, where hydrothermal conditions are favorable and species richness is high. It is a comprehensive research institution and scenic spot integrating scientific research, species conservation and popular science education.

This book introduces 100 species of common birds that can be observed in the garden. The names and classification of birds are based on the China Bird Watching Annual Report - China Bird Directory 4.0 (2016)"

The book functions as a pictorial bird book, allowing visitors to know that they are seeing, but also provides ecological and cultural information on species.

Summary in Chinese:
中国科学院西双版纳热带植物园坐落在水热条件优越、物种丰富的云南省西双版纳地区,是集科学研究、物种保存和科普教育为一体的综合性研究机构和风景名胜区。
本书介绍了100种版纳植物园中可以观察到的常见鸟、特色鸟。其中,鸟类定名和分类以《中国观鸟年报-中国鸟类名录4.0(2016)》为依据。
书中既有鸟类图鉴的功能——拿着这本书就能知道在版纳植物园里看到的是什么鸟;又有一定的故事性——让人意识到一种鸟的背后其实有很多生态、文化的内涵。它既可以是一本面向观鸟初学者的入门书,也可以是一本面向资深观鸟者的进阶指南
