Abstract:

"Beautifully illustrated with color plates and line drawings, this comprehensive review of trogons and quetzals - the first to be published in more than 150 years - covers all thirty-nine extant species. The book includes detailed species accounts, range maps, and identification keys as well as a chapter that discusses comparative biology in terms of evolution, anatomy and morphology, behavior, ecology, breeding biology, and populations. Forty hand-colored plates depict adults of both sexes; nineteen line drawings illustrate behavior and anatomy. The book also includes more than three hundred bibliographic references. This survey will serve as a valuable reference for ornithologists, conservationists, aviculturists, and birdwatchers worldwide."--Jacket.
