About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and Portuguese

This book presents texts in English with a parallel translation in Portuguese. The work Beija-Flores do Brasil collects and gives an overview of our knowledge of Brazil's hummingbirds, includes detailed distribution maps, and presents information about each species, including their habitat, ecology, social system, nesting behaviour and the conservation status of each species. Authors Luís Fábio Silveira and Eduardo Parentoni Brettas also present plants pollinated by hummingbird species, showing the importance of these little birds in perpetuating the life of other species. Without them many plants would be unable to propagate.
