A YOUNG PER­SON’S GUIDE TO FIG­UR­ING IT ALL OUT

ALEX FER­GU­SON-WIL­LIAMS & LISA KRETSCHMER First Pub­lished in 1998, Birds of the In­dian Ocean Is­lands is the only com­pre­hen­sive guide to the bird life of Mada­gas­car, the Sey­chelles, the Co­moros, and the Mas­carenes (Mau­ri­tius, Re­union and Ro­drigues) – an area that boasts high lev­els of en­demism. This new, ex­panded edi­tion is fully up­dated to re­flect tax­o­nomic changes, and now de­scribes and il­lus­trates 502 species. The species ac­counts cover the birds’ ap­pear­ance, ba­sic be­hav­iour, pre­ferred habi­tats, ge­o­graph­i­cal dis­tri­bu­tion and IUCN threat sta­tus. The text is com­ple­mented by newly de­signed plates with la­bels pin­point­ing key dif­fer­en­ti­at­ing fea­tures. The in­tro­duc­tion in­cludes maps for each is­land, lists the re­gion’s 209 en­demic species, and gives pointers on where to go bird-watch­ing. ISBN: 9781770225268 RRP: R170.00
