Argentina encompasses a wide range of habitats, from tropical forests in the north to the windswept wastes of Patagonia in the south, via magnificent wetlands, grasslands and mountains.
With 1075 species fully illustrated and described, this spectacular book includes 199 superb colour plates by some of the world's foremost artists, with concise identification text on facing pages. There are also detailed maps for every species included with the main text. The coverage includes the islands of the South Atlantic, such as the Falklands.
The product of more than 25 years of scholarship, this is the ultimate guide to the birds of this special corner of the Neotropics.
Mark Pearman is a professional bird tour leader who lives in Buenos Aires, and is recognised as one of the top birders in the country.
"[...] I, for one, am very much looking forward to birding in Argentina again and using this excellent guide. Indeed, I am confident that Birds of Argentina and the South-West Atlantic will now become the field guide of choice for anyone birding in Argentina, Paraguay, and Uruguay, as well as the Falkland Islands."
