new Helm Field Guide covers the species-rich Melanesia region of the south-west
Pacific, from New Caledonia and the Solomons through the Bismarcks to Vanuatu,
an increasingly popular destination for tours and travellers and one that has
never before had complete field-guide coverage. The cover star is the Kagu, the
region’s most iconic bird species and a highly sought-after endemic of New
Caledonia. Superb colour plates illustrate the 650 species that occur in the region, allied
with concise identification text and a series of distribution colour bars.

Guy Dutson is an ornithologist and tour-leader, and is the world’s
leading authority on the birds of the south-west Pacific, a region in which he
has described or rediscovered several species. He has led expeditions to the
Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea, in the course of which he rediscovered the
Superb Pitta on Manus. Expeditions to Indonesia and the Philippines led to the
rediscovery of the Tanahjampea Monarch and the find for which he is perhaps best
known, the Cebu Flowerpecker. In 2008 Dutson described a new species, the
Vanikoro White-eye.
