Birds of the Bangkok Area, the


This book offers the most thorough account ever of the avifauna of Thailand’s Lower Central Plain (Lower Chao Phraya Delta). It comprehensively lists all the birds found in this region. 237 species are treated in full biological detail, and illustrated. This book highlights the Bangkok area’s surviving freshwater and coastal habitats—Thailand’s most important and extensive wetlands—of continued international conservation significance despite their proximity to a mega city. Drawing widely on historical and contemporary sources, the book describes how changing land use has affected the bird fauna, identifies shortcomings in national conservation polity, and outlines conservation needs. The text is augmented by 48 color plates, a detailed map and gazetteer of all localities mentioned in the text, and a list of key bird watching sites. Both scientifically accurate and readable, the book will be equally interesting to birdwatchers and to academics and environmental professionals.
