About this book

The larks – a diverse group of mainly grassland birds – form a truly cosmopolitan bird family, one that includes a number of species that, for reasons of rarity, beauty or song, feature in most birders' dreams – the critically endangered Sidamo Lark in it's tiny patch of remaining habitat, the heart – stopping song of the Skylark, the rarely glimpsed Dupont's Lark, or the striking contrast of Black Lark against the snow of the winter steppe.

Written by two of the world's leading ornithologists, Paul Donald and Per Alström, this landmark volume in the Helm Identification Guides series provides the definitive record of the taxonomy, biology, ecology and conservation status of all 98 species of larks, with detailed distribution maps to accompany the text. A worthy companion to Pipits and Wagtails (also co-authored by Per Alström), Larks of the World includes a series of outstanding plates by the brilliant artist Faansie Peacock, and hundreds of photographs covering the full range of racial and age – related plumage variety.

Larks of the World is the ultimate reference work on these remarkable and beautiful birds, and an indispensible addition to the libraries of researchers and birders for many years to come.

Biography

Paul Donald is Senior Scientist at BirdLife International, and before this was for a long time Principal Scientist at the RSPB. He fell in love with larks while doing his doctoral research at Oxford University on the ecology of Skylarks, and has since worked on all of the world’s rarest larks.

Per Alström is Professor of Ornithology at Uppsala University’s Department of Ecology and Genetics and the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences. A keen birder since his childhood in south-west Sweden, Per started travelling abroad at an early age, and he has spent many years in the field in Asia, North America and parts of Africa.
