is a completely revised second edition of the bestselling field guide to the
birds of the Middle East, covering Turkey, Cyprus, Syria, Lebanon, Israel,
Jordan, Iraq, Iran, the Arabian peninsula and Socotra. For the first time, the
text and maps appear opposite the plates, and as a consequence there are fewer
species per plate than before. The text and maps have been fully revised and
many new artworks have been painted by the three illustrators. There are more
than 100 new species in this new edition, which features more than 820 species
in total. This is an essential field guide for anyone visiting the Middle East.
Richard Porter has
been involved with birds in the Middle East since 1966 and is an adviser on
bird conservation for BirdLife International. He is the author or co-author of
several books on the Middle East and the groundbreaking Flight Identification
of European Raptors. Simon Aspinall has lived in the UAE since 1993, pursuing
his professional interests in conservation and ecology throughout the Middle
East and Caucasus. He has published extensively on natural history, especially
within Arabia and with an emphasis on birds; traveling widely in that quest he
has probably seen more species in the region than any other modern-day birder.
John Gale, Mike Langman and Brian Small are world-renowned bird illustrators
with many books to their credit.
