This is the first available reference to describe and document all known species of quails, partridges, and francolins. A companion volume to The Pheasants of the World, this text covers nearly three times as many species, and includes many more color plates, some of which represent species that have never before been illustrated in color in ornithological literature. The text includes comparative chapters on reproductive biology, ecology, population dynamics, ontogenetic development, and behavior, as well as a review of taxonomy and zoogeographic aspects of the groups. Identification keys to genera and species are provided, and criteria for identifying individual species by age and sex are also included. The book is an invaluable resource for ornithologists, ecologists, and anyone interested in these diverse species of game birds.
