The first ever guide to the birds of Mongolia.
Mongolia is a huge landlocked country in the centre of Asia. It encompasses a diverse range of habitats including forests, mountains, vast plains and of course the Gobi Desert. For many years it was closely allied with Russia, although it has never been part of the Soviet Union. There has never been a guide to the birds of Mongolia before and this new field guide provides full details of every species to be found in the country. Using plates specially created for the book, the guide follows traditional field guide design with plates arranged opposite the text. Detailed maps - a mapping feat never before attempted for this remote land - accompany the text.
Axel Braunlich is German by birth but has travelled extensively in Mongolia. He now lives in the country and is actively involved with various conservation programmes there. Gombobaatar is assistant professor of zoology at the National University of Mongolia and Vice President of the Mongolian Ornithological Society.
