  • Birds of Eastern Polynesia: A Biogeographic Atlas
    Birds of Eastern Polynesia: A… by Thibault

    Birds of Eastern Polynesia provides a comprehensive presentation of the 240 species of birds ever recorded in Eastern Polynesia, a vast area of Oceania. The objective of this book is to synthesise biogeographic and phylogenetic data for all species, extinct or extant, in the form of a comprehensive atlas. The information for each species is presented on detailed maps, along with a summary text and figures on systematics, range, numbers, trends, and natural history. Many monographs on seabirds (albatrosses, petrels, boobies, etc.) and landbirds (pigeons, reed warblers, swiftlets, etc.) include Polynesian species. However works devoted to the complete avifauna of Eastern Polynesia are few. Birds of Eastern Polynesia represents a necessary and original ornithological synthesis of all the available literature on Eastern Polynesia birds, including many difficult-to-find reports written in French, as well as unpublished data gathered from local ornithologists and biologists. It contains also unpublished data collected by the authors during numerous fieldtrips in Eastern Polynesia and during visits to museums, the major one being the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH, New York), which holds the largest collection of Pacific islands birds.

  • Birds of New Guinea: Including Bismarck Archipelago and Bougainville
    Birds of New Guinea: Including Bismarck… -

    This is the first field guide to cover the entire New Guinea region, comprising Indonesian West Papua (including the West Papuan Islands, Geelvink Bay Islands and Aru Islands) and Papua New Guinea and its associated islands, the Bismarcks and Bougainville.

    All of the 943 species known to occur are covered, including the extraordinarily high total of 456 endemics, as well as 5 introduced species, 2 species yet to be formally described and a separate appendix with 75 vagrants. Subspecies are listed also to give a comprehensive overview of the remarkable regional avifauna. New Guinea is the second largest island in the world and many of its ecosystems are as yet relatively intact. There are 7 endemic families, and the region is the major centre of diversity for pigeons and doves, kingfishers, parrots, honeyeaters and birds of paradise, with an astonishing diversity and morphological variation and including some of the most sought-after species in the world. The author has over 25 years experience in the region, living there for some 7 years and travelling widely on birding and research trips, which has given him valuable experience and insight into the avifauna that he has shared with hundreds of people over the years.

    The artists from Lynx Edicions have worked on many new and revised plates, which give an excellent visual coverage of the avifauna, with over 1780 illustrations. The taxonomy is up-to-date and the distribution maps have been carefully prepared and revised, whilst field identification and vocalizations are a major interest and should make Birds of New Guinea an essential and compact reference companion to anyone birding in the region.
