Media reviews
Important Bird Areas in India is an impressive work, though it may sound dull listing 465 IBAs, this is far from the case. There is a lot of detail and many fine photographs of areas that most of us have never heard of, let alone had an opportunity to visit, and that hold an impressive fauna. It is to be hoped that the book's production will lead to improvements in the status of many of the species discussed. Times Literary Supplement, September 2006.
