Adriaens, Peter, Mars Muusse, Philippe J. Dubois, and Frederic Jiguet. $39.95
A comprehensive photographic guide to the gull species of the Western Palearctic. Gulls occupy a particularly important place in the world of birds. But because they are notoriously difficult to identify, they have long been ignored in the ornithological literature. Gulls of Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East offers the most up-to-date guide for gull identification in Europe and beyond. With a direct and visual approach, and an exhaustive abundance of beautiful color photographs, this book provides thorough accounts of all species and subspecies of gulls found in the Western Palearctic. The guide compares similar taxa and addresses the complexities of identifying hybrids. Gulls of Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East will be the standard work for identifying these birds for some time to come.
Richly illustrated with nearly 1400 color photographs; Thorough accounts of all species and subspecies of gulls found in the Western Palearctic; Up-to-date information for easy and accurate identification of 45 species.
