About this Item: DC Books, 2011. Hardcover. Condition: As New. Contents: Preface. 1. A history of ornithology in Kerala. 2. The changing landscape of Kerala. 3. Climate of Kerala. 4. An overview of the bird communities of Kerala. 5. Conservation. 6. Site descriptions. 7. Species accounts: methodology and notes. 8. Species accounts: the main list. 9. Species accounts: the secondary list. Appendices. Bibliography. Index. The first chapter Ornithology of Kerala is fascinating to read and sets the tone for the rest of the book It also proves the erudition and meticulous research which the authors have done. The chapter The Changing Landscape of Kerala by Dr Sathis Chandran Nair is wonderful and gives great details of habitat, topography and biogeography of the state. The earlier book Birds of Kerala had listed only 379 species, so more than 100 species have been added to the checklist of birds from this small state of India. Unlike the so-called revised edition of Birds of Kerala (1999) which had many mistakes and disputable records, in this book, the four authors have meticulously mentioned all the new records and given reference s) wherever appropriate. The bibliography contains about 900 references, which further proves thorough research done by the authors. Seller Inventory # 109219
