Gamebirds of Southern Africa
Published: September 2011
This edition of Gamebirds of Southern Africa (first published in 2000) has been updated and subtly redesigned, but still adheres to the original standards of xcellence. The 21 species of upland gamebird found in southern Africa fall into four groups: francolins and spurfowls (12 species), quails (3 species), guineafowls (2 species) and sandgrouse (4 species). Gamebirds of Southern Africa offers: Text that summarises the large but scattered body of accumulated scientific research; pertinent and interesting facts presented in readable fashion; illustrated plates that convey in accurate and painstaking detail the precise environment of each bird; beautifully rendered paintings – works of art in themselves. Gamebirds of Southern Africa will be a worthy addition to ornithological literature and to the bookshelves of bird enthusiasts, art lovers, and anyone with an interest in nature and conservation.
