An authoritative guide to the Cypriot avifauna. In addition to including the latest records and distribution data, this fully revised edition also includes photographs and location maps for the first time. Initial chapters cover the history of Cypriot ornithology, geography, geology, climate and vegetation, migration, breeding and threats to the island's avifauna. The complete systematic list, which makes up the bulk of the book, gives details of status and distribution, breeding, and ringing recoveries. There is also a very useful 15-page guide with maps to sites of ornithological interest in Cyprus.
