About this book

Reprinted edition (not revised, but with new cover) of the book first published by Academic Press in 1999.

Volume one covers the non-passerine avifauna of Singapore, peninsular Malaysia, southern Thailand, and the tip of Tenasserim (Burma) their associated island archipelagos to latitude 11'N.

From the publisher's announcement:

During 30 years of residence in the region, author David Wells has acquired an unrivalled understanding of the birds of the Thai-Malay peninsula. This is a classic region of high biodiversity - home to a rich and special resident avifauna that is joined in season by a host of migrants from North Asia to create a fascinating faunal mix.

In this modern handbook you'll find over 380 non-passerine species described in meticulous detail using data derived from field and museum research, as well as an immense range of information from little known or previously unpublished sources. Seventy spectacular full-colour plates feature portraits of many species covered in the book, providing a beautiful pictorial reference from some of the world's leading artists. The book is also fully referenced to a bibliography of over 800 sources.
