    About this book. Language: English. The Indian Bird Migration Atlas provides, in a nutshell, information on the origins, migration routes as well as stop-over and wintering sites of birds migrating in and outside the Indian subcontinent. It also includes discussions on the findings of statellite-tracking and geolocator-tagging studies on Indian Birds' undertaken by the Bombay Natural History.   I have just been looking at the book 'The Migration Atlas: Movements of the Birds of Britain and Ireland' (BTO) in my local Waterstones and it looks fantastic but it was £65!! I'm sure that it is actually worth it - e.g. far more information than 5 of many 'standard' bird books, but I just can't afford that amount of money as a student and.

    Unlike another reviewer I would regard this book as one to be read thoroughly, cover to cover. This is not a reference book, but a detailed examination of what we know, suspect and need to research on the subject of avian migration. It's incredibly comprehensive, written by one of the great experts in the field/5. The Atlas of Chick Development, Third Edition, a classic work covering all major event of chick development, is extensively updated with new and more detailed photographs, enlargements showing regions of special-interest and complexity, and new illustrations. The revised text and expanded illustrative material describe the intricate changes.

      The atlas offers an insight into the dynamics and routes of Croatian birds’ migration, as well as the European populations migrating over or wintering in Croatia. "The Red lists/data books are the contemporary tools we apply to measure the extinction rate of biodiversity," said Dr Matija Franković, Director of the State Institute for Nature. Birds face a changing world. The state of birdlife reflects our relationship with nature and our landscapes. The atlas presents the current distribution, abundance and altitudinal distribution of all breeding birds in Switzerland and Liechtenstein with unprecedented precision. Most importantly, it highlights the profound changes that have taken place in the Swiss avifauna over the past 20 to.
