Turkey is a popular destination for birders and tourists, and although there has been much published on its birds over the past 40 years, there has never been a comprehensive avifauna. The Birds of Turkey redresses this. It contains a detailed account of every species on the Turkish list, with a full breakdown of records and status, distribution in Turkey, and taxonomy. There are also authoritative introductory chapters on geography, climate, habitats, history of ornithology and conservation.
· The first comprehensive book on Turkish birds
· Written and edited by a team of leading ornithologists, under the auspices of the Ornithological Society of the Middle East
· Covers the status and distribution of every species recorded in Turkey, including all vagrants
