"This is without doubt a monumental publication" "Guy Kirwan and his team are to be congratulated on a thorough, professional publication that will without doubt be the essential reference for Turkish birdlife" BirdGuides.com February 2009 "this book is a great achievement in the study of birds of the Middle East" Falcon Research Group, Spring 2009Reseña del editor:
Turkey is a popular destination for birders and tourists, and although there has been much published on its birds over the past 40 years, there has never been a comprehensive avifauna. The Birds of Turkey redresses this. It contains a detailed account of every species on the Turkish list, with a full breakdown of records and status, distribution in Turkey, and taxonomy. There are also authoritative introductory chapters on geography, climate, habitats, history of ornithology and conservation.

Buchbeschreibung London : A&C Black, Helm, 2009. Zustand: Sehr gut. 512 S. Ein gutes und sauberes Exemplar. - Turkey - ornithologically one of the most fascinating countries in the Western Palearctic - lies not only at the crossroads between Europe and Asia, but also at the meeting point of a variety of biomes. The extensive semi-deserts of the Middle East reach their northernmost limit in southeastern Turkey, while the Pontic Mountains, which dominate much of the north of the country, support a principally European fauna, along with near-endemics such as Caucasian Grouse, Green Warbler, Caspian Snowcock and Krüper's Nuthatch. In central Turkey, huge saline lakes hold colonies of flamingos, pelicans and Pygmy Cormorants, while the surrounding semi-steppe supports populations of Montagu's Harrier, Great Bustard and abundant larks. The Birds of Turkey is the first avifauna to document this amazing ornithological diversity. The book looks in detail at every species ever reported in the country -breeding birds, passage migrants, winter visitors and vagrants - with a review of status and distribution, accurate distribution maps, and discussions of breeding biology and the latest taxonomic revisions. Introductory chapters provide overviews of Turkey's major biomes and the history of ornithology in the country, and a discussion of future research objectives. The book also contains stunning colour photography contributed by a number of leading Turkish ornithologists. ISBN 9781408104750 Sprache: Englisch Gewicht in Gramm: 1505 Mit zahlr. farb. Abb.
