The Birds of the Iberian Peninsula


The Birds of the Iberian Peninsula Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Iberian Peninsula is one of Europe's most ornithologically varied regions offering a host of regional specialities. It includes famous birding hotspots such as the Coto Donaña wetlands, mountainous areas such as the Picos de Europa and the Pyrenees, the Mediterranean cork and holm oak forests of the southwest, the migration crossroads of the Strait of Gibraltar and the steppe-like plains of Extremadura and Alentejo. Large numbers of birders from around Europe visit the region to see this wealth of winged wildlife, but to date there has been no comprehensive regional avifauna in English.

Birds of the Iberian Peninsula is a national avifauna that fills this gap in the ornithological literature. Full-color throughout, the book begins with authoritative introductory chapters covering subjects such as geography, climate, habitats, the history of Iberian ornithology and the composition of the avifauna. The species accounts then cover every species recorded in mainland Spain, the Balearic Islands, Portugal, Gibraltar and Andorra, including the many vagrants. For each species there is detailed treatment of distribution - with maps of breeding and wintering ranges - habitat selection, population trends, historical and current status, migration and conservation.


This authoratative title is the definitive avifauna covering the Iberian Peninsula - Europe's most ornithologically diverse region.
