About this book

This new edition of Birds of Africa South of the Sahara contains some 400 updated images along with fully revised text, capturing the latest information available. It provides unrivalled coverage of African birds in a single volume, and is the only book to describe and illustrate all the birds found in Africa south of the Sahara Desert (the Afrotropic Region), including Socotra, Pemba and islands in the Gulf of Guinea, but excluding the Indian Ocean Islands. Despite its exceptional coverage, Birds of Africa South of the Sahara is compact enough to use in the field, and follows the standard field guide format, with texts and range maps appearing opposite the colour plates. With its extraordinary reach and coverage, this is a must-have volume for all birding enthusiasts.
