Newman S Birds of South Africa: 10th Edition

Newman S Birds of South Africa: 10th Edition Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This commemorative tenth edition celebrates the contribution of the late author, Kenneth Newman, fully revised and updated by his daughter, Vanessa Newman, to reflect the latest research, taxonomy and common names. Newman's Birds of Southern Africa, a leading field guide in the region, illustrates and fully describes all the birds recorded from the Antarctic to the Zambezi River. The familiar, user-friendly format of Newman's Birds has been subtly modernized for a fresh look, and plate annotations have been added to the large, accurate paintings of each species, in line with modern trends.

Book News Annotation:

This commemorative edition honors one of the region's best-loved birding authors, renowned ornithologist and artist Kenneth Newman (1924-2006). The text has been revised, updated, and expanded by the author's daughter, London-based Vanessa Newman, with the support of bird expert Faansie Peacock, to reflect the latest avian research. Covering 900-plus birds of South Africa, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Botswana, Swaziland, Lesotho, Mozambique, and the southern seas, the text is arranged in a user-friendly format, with pages color-coded by major bird groups. The material is illustrated with accurate paintings of each bird as seen in nature, with diagnostic features labeled on the illustrations. The work is indexed by scientific, Afrikaans, and English name. Distributed by International Publishers Marketing. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
