Summary

The Atlas of Birdscaptures the breathtaking diversity of birdlife around the world. This authoritative and full-color atlas features stunning maps that show where birds are found and explain their distribution, with numerous photos and illustrations that showcase the most interesting aspects of bird behavior. Conservation is highlighted throughout, backed up by the very latest findings from BirdLife International on the threats birds face today.

This one-of-a-kind atlas explains the different classifications of birds--such as flightless birds, songbirds, seabirds, wildfowl, parrots, and raptors--and includes maps and case studies that illustrate where and why birds are most under threat, and what is being done to protect them.
