About this book

Please note, this is a reissue of New Holland Field Guide to the Birds of South-East Asia, formerly on the natural history list of New Holland publishers.

The up-to-date text covers the identification, voice, habitat, behaviour and range of all the 1270 species and distinctive subspecies of this magnificent bird-rich region. The authoritative text is accompanied by 142 full-colour plates painted by a range of expert artists and covering major plumage variations. The guide has no distribution maps, distribution is indicated in each species account simply by mentioning the name of the country, and, using abbreviations, the rarity of the bird and whether it's a resident, vagrant etc.

Birds of South-East Asia: Concise Edition is a complete field and reference guide to the birds of Thailand, Peninsular Malaysia, Singapore, Myanmar, Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia. It also covers a wide range of species found in the Indian subcontinent, China, Taiwan, Sumatra, Java, Bali, Borneo and the Philippines.

The guide is a condensed version of A Field Guide to the Birds of South-East Asia (Robson 2000), and is intended to be as portable as possible, for use in the field. Obviously, in order to save space and therefore weight, the species accounts are relatively short and are intended to be as concise as possible within the publisher's brief. Additionally, the illustrations are spread across an increased number of plates (142 rather than 104), and all of the species text faces the relevant plates.
