Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

SINCE Volume One appeared, this series has been widely accepted as the definitive reference work on the world's 10,000 bird species. These two most recent volumes in a projected series of 16 get off to a powerful start with absorbing introductory essays on the ecological role of birds and the evolution of birds. The essay in Volume 12 draws on the latest fossil evidence and includes interesting examples from this part of the world. The bird families covered in Volume 11 include the fantails, flycatchers and monarchs, many of which occur in the Pacific Islands. The endemic New Zealand fantail is also included among the 44 fantail species covered. Volume 12 has a stronger emphasis on Australian and New Zealand bird species covering the babblers, logrunners, whistlers, Australasian robins and fairy-wrens. The yellowhead (mohoua), whitehead (popokatea), brown creeper (pipipi), New Zealand tomtit (riororiro), New Zealand robin (toutouwai) and Chatham Island black robin are all covered. In the absence of a comprehensive, up-to-date guide book to the birds of the Pacific Islands, this series offers the most in-depth contemporary account of them. Each species is illustrated with specially commissioned paintings which show the different plumages of the sexes and juvenile stages necessary for field identification. Michael Szabo.

Commercial gnatcatchers? 25 juillet 2012
Par Ashtar Command - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This is volume 11 of HBW or "Handbook of the Birds of the World", a 16-volume encyclopedia and scientific reference work covering all (!) species of birds. The entire series took 19 years to publish, so the editors at Lynx Edicions must have been very satisfied indeed when the last volume hit the stores late last year.

The eleventh volume was published in 2006. It covers a number of passerine families, most notably the Old World Warblers. Indeed, about half of this grand volume deals with the warblers. The rest of the book covers Old World Fly-catchers, Batises and Wattle-Eyes, Kinglets and Firecrests, Fantails, Cisticolas and allies, Monarch Fly-catchers, and Gnatcatchers. I readily admit that I never heard of many of these families before. Gnatcatchers? As opposed to Fly-catchers, presumably...

As usual, each family is introduced with an extensive chapter on systematics, morphology, habitat, habits, relationship with man and conservation status. Species presentations follow. All species are illustrated on the color plates. In addition, the book also contains real color photographs of many of the birds mentioned in the text. It's the photos that mark HBW out from normal reference works of this kind, which are all text and very little pictures. I think the photos are the main reason why Lynx Edicions are promoting the HBW on the commercial market, despite the heavy, non-popularized character of the text.

Obviously, HBW volume 11 is worth five stars.
