Descripción del producto
Having finished the Handbook of the Birds of the World (HBW), Lynx are publishing a checklist in association with BirdLife: HBW and Birdlife International Illustrated Checklist of the Birds of the World. This will complement the HBW collection and each volume will be the same size as a HBW Volume, with Volume 1 covering the non-passerines, and volume 2 covering the passerines.
These books are really two works in one. They are a complete checklist whose taxonomy incorporates the most up-to-date information and an exhaustive methodology (Tobiaset al. 2010) in an entirely systematic and consistent way. At the same time, they contain illustrations and distribution maps for every bird species in the world. This includes the original artwork from the HBW series, as well as hundreds of new illustrations, all in two compact volumes.
An extensive introduction, with many illustrated examples, explains the rationale and advantages of the taxonomic system adopted in the Checklist, as well as how to use the book.
Two appendices cover all the species considered to have become extinct since 1500. The first gives full treatment, including text, illustration and former range map for the extinct species, known from complete specimens. The second provides information for the extinct species not known from complete specimens.
Large-format maps offer the reader assistance in interpreting the distribution sections. They provide both administrative and physical details, for greater clarity of use.
