Beautifully illustrated with color plates and line drawings, this comprehensive review of trogons and quetzals - the first to be published in more than 150 years - covers all 39 extant species. It includes detailed species accounts, range maps, and identification keys as well as a chapter that discusses comparative biology in terms of evolution, anatomy and morphology, behaviour, ecology, breeding, biology, and populations. Forty hand-coloured plates - most by renowned nineteenth-century illustrator John Gould and others by John O'Neill, Dan Lane, Dana Gardner, and James D. McClelland - depict adults of both sexes. Nineteen line drawings by author Paul Johnsgard illustrate behaviour and anatomy.
