The Birds of Africa: Volume VIII

The Malagasy Region: Madagascar, Seychelles, Comoros, Mascarenes

Published by Christopher Helm

This is the eighth and final volume in the authoritative Birds of Africa series. It covers the Malagasy region which comprises Madagascar and the various islands and archipelagos of the Indian Ocean including the Seychelles, the Comoros, Mauritius and Réunion.

Every resident and migrant species is covered in full detail, comparable to other volumes in the series, and with a colour map for each species. Vagrants are treated in less detail. All species are illustrated on a beautiful series of 64 colour plates, with original artwork from John Gale and Brian Small.

This is a major work of reference on the birds of the region and will remain the standard text for many years to come.
