The Cerrado is a distinctive Brazilian habitat that is the planet's biologically richest savanna.This compact modern field guide's unparalleled color artwork throughout, identification points, and range map for each species enable easy identification of all the birds normally found in these vibrant and critically important areas of Brazil. With 116 threatened species encompassing 25 percent of South America's threatened birds, Brazil has an imperative to conserve its birds and unique habitats that begins with their appreciation and identification. Thus, the species accounts are coupled with an introductory chapter on the region's unique environments and pressing conservation challenges.

About the Author:

ROBERT S. RIDGELY, a leading ornithologist and author of A Guide to the Birds of Panama and The Birds of Ecuador, is Deputy Director of World Land Trust-US. He has served on numerous conservation-related boards, and currently is especially involved with Fundacion Jocotoco in Ecuador, of which he is president.

GUY TUDOR, a MacArthur Fellow and well-known bird artist and naturalist, was the principal illustrator of A Guide to the Birds of Venezuela and A Guide to the Birds of Colombia.

Review:

"This landmark guide―the first in an ecologically focused series―represents a major milestone for birding and conservation in the American tropics. Brazil is by far the richest country in the world for birds and tropical wilderness. Avian diversity and abundance combine magically in the Pantanal and Cerrado regions of Brazil's interior. Finally, we have a field guide covering all the birds of this region, richly illustrated by the best in the business and complete with detailed notes and photographs describing the unique ecology and conservation issues of this captivating piece of paradise. Kudos to John A. Gwynne, Robert S. Ridgley, Guy Tudor, and Martha Argel for carrying through with this labor of love. Birding in Brazil just became a whole lot easier and more rewarding. I can't wait to get back down there and use this book!"―John W. Fitzpatrick, Louis Agassiz Fuertes Director, Cornell Lab of Ornithology
