About this book

Cameroon, thanks to its variety of habitats, is blessed with an impressive biodiversity. Birds are no exception and close to 1,000 species are known to occur in Cameroon.

A leading expert in Cameroon ornithology, the author has searched for records from literature and scientific reports published since 1900, and has added thousands of personal observations to build a database of over 67,000 records. For the first time ever, The Birds of Cameroon gives individual distribution maps for each of the 954 species accepted in the Cameroon list. Accompanying these maps, a short account summarises the status and distribution of each species, providing a wealth of scientific references.

This titanic work also provides useful insight on current gaps in knowledge and points to research and surveys that are needed to improve the general and specific knowledge of the fascinating avifauna of Cameroon. The Birds of Cameroon: Their Status and Distribution is a landmark in Cameroonian ornithology and will find its place in the hands of any naturalist interested in Cameroon. Additionally, the book offers over 500 stunning pictures of birds, for the pleasure of any nature lover in Cameroon and Africa in general.
