About this book

Language: English with bilingual introductory chapters in English and French; and English, French and scientific nomenclature

Based on extensive recent fieldwork by the authors, augmented by the contributions of resident or visiting naturalists, The Birds of Benin and Togo presents detailed accounts of the more than 650 species known in both Benin and Togo (of which there are 135 migrants from the northern hemisphere). The text complements the species maps, with a synthesis of what is known of ecology, status, movements, breeding seasons, taxonomy and conservation concerns. Some 330 published references are cited, and there are details of ringing recoveries and a gazetteer of more than 900 localities. In 100 pages, the introductory chapters review the topography and climate, vegetation and major bird habitats, biogeography, migration, conservation and the history of ornithological exploration in the Dahomey Gap. The colour photos illustrate the main habitats and a selection of typical bird species.
