Product description

Review

... provides a valuable stepping stone for exploring Thailand's diversity. --Kirkus Reviews

...admirable series of well-written and attractively illustrated guides aimed at environmentally conscious travellers ... Thailand follows the established layout in having chapters on ecotourism, geography and habitats, parks and reserves, and how to use the book (explaining ecology and natural history). A separate chapter is then devoted to each of the animal groups, terrestrial and aquatic, surveyed. That on birds is about 60 pages long and ends, as do several others, with an 'Environmental close-up', in this case a discussion of frugivory. Of the 970 bird species recorded in Thailand, 186 are illustrated here (by David Nurney) and the brief texts opposite comprise ID, Habitat (including symbols) and Region. --IBIS, British Ornithologists Union
