Birds of Melanesia : Bismarcks, Solomons, Vanuatu and New Caledonia Paperback / softback
by Guy Dutson
Part of the Helm Field Guides series
This new Helm Field Guide covers the species-rich Melanesia region of the south-west Pacific, from New Caledonia and the Solomons through the Bismarcks to Vanuatu, an increasingly popular destination for tours and travellers and one that has never before had complete field-guide coverage.
The cover star is the Kagu, the region's most iconic bird species and a highly sought-after endemic of New Caledonia.
Superb colour plates illustrate the 650 species that occur in the region, allied with concise identification text and a series of distribution colour bars.
For anyone travelling to this far-flung Pacific region, this book is indispensable.
