Description: This book covers a region of high biodiversity which provides a home to a rich and special bird community. Most of its bird species, and nearly all of those endemic to the region, reside in tropical forest habitats; however, one of the world's fastest rates of agricultural deforestation has swept them to a fraction of their former range, creating a dramatic conservation problem. Twenty years after the last summary publication on the region, this volume presents the most complete modern summary of the latest surveys and research on all the birds now found in the Thai-Malayan Peninsula. Over 380 species are described using data derived from field and museum research, as well as previously unpublished or poorly distributed data from local compilers, diaries, and personal records. More than 70 spectacular full-page color plates show almost all of the species covered. This volume also includes a fully referenced bibliography of over 800 sources. An extensive introduction covers aspects of history, biogeography, and ecology of the region's birds, plus the main conservation issues which face them.
