Product description


"Helmut Sick was one of the most dedicated and active ornithologists ever to work in South America.... [This book is] of great scientific value, yet adopting the best ideas from 'old fashioned' natural histories, and it will stand as a fitting epitaph to its author. It is certainly enjoyable and informative."--The Environmentalist


Here is a substantially revised and updated English-language version of the only comprehensive, scientific treatment of Brazil's 1635 bird species. Written by the then dean of Brazilian ornithologists and published in Brazil in 1985, it not only lists every individual Brazilian species and provides detailed accounts for most of them but also gives an extensive treatment of the characteristics of each bird family found in the country. In addition, it analyzes the composition of Brazil's avifauna and relates it to the country's geography.
