About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and Portuguese

Provides a comprehensive account of ten key areas of Important Bird Areas (IBAs) in Guinea-Bissau, which together cover around one third of the surface area of the country. This demonstrates the high importance of Guinea-Bissau for birds. The coastline in particular, with its mangroves, estuaries, islands and floodplains, is of great international importance for waterbirds. The Bijagos Archipelago alone seasonally supports close to one million migratory waders. All of the ten sites are described in detail with supporting data, and where possible, site maps are provided along with conservation recommendations. The site descriptions are preceded by an introduction to both the IBA process and to Guinea-Bissau, and a synopsis of threats to biodiveristy at the national level. The annexes include an updated bird list for Guinea-Bissau, detailing occurrence at all of the 10 IBA's as well as lists of other vertebrate groups.
