About this book

Africa's 2,300 bird species include 340 of global conservation concern. This book details 1228 sites in 58 countries in Africa which support such threatened species, or meet other criteria to qualify as Important Bird Areas. Africa's IBAs cover 7 percent of the continent's land area. The island of Bouvetoya has one IBA of 50 km2; South Africa has 101 IBAs, while the total area covered by Sudan's IBAs is more than 180,000 km2. Country summaries provide environmental, geographic, political and cultural information as well as conservation factors and ornithological summaries. Sites are mapped and line drawings of some key bird species are included. 16 pages of full-colour photographs show main habitat types.
