About this book

This outstanding resource for both professional and amateur ornithologists is the first systematic owl checklist for over 50 years to include subspecies and synonyms and provides information on the type locality, habitat and distribution of 220 owl species and 539 taxa, plus details of museum collections. It contains an abundance of hitherto-unpublished measurements and includes both scientific names and the common names of each species in English, German, French and Spanish.

The author, a painter of animals and an illustrator of textbooks, has already co-authored several ornithological publications. This book includes beautiful line drawings and watercolors of owls.

Aus den Rezensionen: "Mit 220 Arten ist diese zweisprachige Weltliste der Eulen auf einem modernen Stand ! von Systematik und Taxonomie der Ordnung. ! Unterschiedliche taxonomische Entscheidungen lassen sich ! gut verfolgen ! Ein muhevoll und sorgfaltig angelegtes Buch, das vielleicht eines der letzten seiner Art ist, denn systematische Listen dieses Umfangs mit Stichwortangaben werden wohl zukunftig billiger und benutzerfreundlicher auf elektronischem Datentrager mit Suchsystemen publiziert." (in: Der Falke, 2007, Vol. 54, Issue 4, S. 160)
