内容紹介

Brazil, the fifth largest nation in the world, is one of the planet's richest places for avian diversity and endemism. With the Birds of Brazil field guide series, the Wildlife Conservation Society brings together a top international team to do justice to the incredible diversity of Brazil's avifauna. This first guide of the planned five-volume series features the 743 bird species of the Pantanal and Cerrado regions of Central Brazil.The sprawling Pantanal plain, one of the world's most famed birding sites, is a seasonally flooded wetland boasting both impressive concentrations of large waterbirds and species such as the Toco Toucan, Hyacinth Macaw, Golden-collared Macaw, and endemic Blaze-winged Parakeets. The Cerrado is a distinctive Brazilian habitat that is the planet's biologically richest savanna.This compact modern field guide's unparalleled color artwork throughout, identification points, and range map for each species enable easy identification of all the birds normally found in these vibrant and critically important areas of Brazil. With 116 threatened species encompassing 25 percent of South America's threatened birds, Brazil has an imperative to conserve its birds and unique habitats that begins with their appreciation and identification. Thus, the species accounts are coupled with an introductory chapter on the region's unique environments and pressing conservation challenges. This practical and portable guide is an indispensable companion to those visiting Brazil's glorious natural areas of the Pantanal and Cerrado.

レビュー

"This landmark guide-the first in an ecologically focused series-represents a major milestone for birding and conservation in the American tropics. Brazil is by far the richest country in the world for birds and tropical wilderness. Avian diversity and abundance combine magically in the Pantanal and Cerrado regions of Brazil's interior. Finally, we have a field guide covering all the birds of this region, richly illustrated by the best in the business and complete with detailed notes and photographs describing the unique ecology and conservation issues of this captivating piece of paradise. Kudos to John A. Gwynne, Robert S. Ridgley, Guy Tudor, and Martha Argel for carrying through with this labor of love. Birding in Brazil just became a whole lot easier and more rewarding. I can't wait to get back down there and use this book!"-John W. Fitzpatrick, Louis Agassiz Fuertes Director, Cornell Lab of Ornithology

5つ星のうち 4.0 Very Good; but room for improvement 2017/5/19
投稿者 Jim M. - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック Amazonで購入
Very good as others have mentioned. But I wanted to point out one drawback that I have noticed now that I am using the book more in prep for a Brazil trip. The number of plumages represented for several species are unhelpfully limited, and in several cases, distinct plumages are represented only by an illustration of the head. In particular, juvenile plumages of passerines are almost never illustrated, and in many cases of distinct male and female plumages are only represented by an illustration of one sex. (This is partly a consequence of the passerine illustrations being taken from "Field Guide to the Songbirds of South America" by Ridgely & Tudor, which has similarly limited illustrations).

An example is the masked and black-tailed tityras on page 245. Only the male masked is illustrated, and only the female black-tailed is illustrated. This leaves the birder to trying to ID these similar looking birds by reading the text description--not good! (I noticed the Atlantic Forest guide, the second in the series, at least adds a head illustration of the male Black-tailed, but that doesn't help you if all you have is this book.) Another example on the same page is Pink-throated Becard--only illustrated by the head of the male. One really needs to see the whole bird as well as the far different female plumage.

I hope these deficiencies can be remedied in a second edition. They were likely compromises that helped make the book possible. Of course, it is far better to have this guide than no Pantanal guide at all. But serious birders may want to have a supplement, such as the Van Perlo Brazil guide which at least illustrates more male and female plumages.

This was a great reference to have on my trip to the Pantanal and Cerrado. Very nicely layed out and illustrated. As others mentioned, the printing was somewhat faded (i.e. most birds are much more vibrant than the book shows). The descriptions and maps are nice, although not always 100% accurate.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Excellent new guide for exciting area of Brazil 2011/1/10
投稿者 James L. Spingarn - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック Amazonで購入
This is an excellent new bird guide for a world-class region known as the Pantanal and Cerrado in interior Brazil. The authors are two of the most knowledgeable experts on the area there are -- John A. Gwynne and Robert S. Ridgely. Their text is perfect. Succinct but in conversational sentence structure form. It cover appearance and identification points, viewing suggestions, voice, habits and its frequency. Indigenous birds are marked with tiny Brazilian flags and threatened birds are marked with the category of risk. The maps are good, too.

The plates are virtually all first-rate. The passerines (perching birds) are the work, borrowed from excellent past volumes of his, of the fabulous Guy Tudor -- one of the best bird guide artists there is. The others, while done by various artists, are very well done, too.

In summation, this is an excellent guide for an exceptional region (World Heritage Class) that is extremely well done, and can be fitted in a largish pocket for bush viewing and solidly bound for some rough use. Amazon is offering it at a bargain price. If great bird guides interest you, don't pass up this beauty!
5つ星のうち 5.0 A field guide nearly as good as a actual bird guide! 2012/9/6

I used this book in Rio, Iguassu Falls and in the Pantanal. Although it is written for the Pantanal and Cerrado of Central Brazil, it includes birds found in other regions and was fine for Rio and Iguassu. The book is inclusive for the Pantanal area (740 species) but not too cumbersome to carry while birding.

I had considered buying a guide with all the birds of Brazil, but it would be too heavy to carry. The book I had considered was A Field Guide to the Birds of Brazil. However, the illustrations were so small and unclear that it would not have been worth the weight. Certainly this Wildlife Conservation Society guide is far superior in quality.

This book is new enough (2010) to cover most of the latest changes in taxonomy. Most importantly, the drawings and descriptions are clear enough to allow identification of birds and enable you to distinguish between similar species and subspecies. The drawings also include birds on the fly, as well as male, female and immature.

The drawings include Portuguese as well as English names, with the scientific name in the species description. Essential, in my view, is having the description next to the drawing of the bird. The descriptions contain appearance, habitat, behavior, and vocalizations.

Each bird description contains a range map showing range of bird breeding, boreal migrant, austral migrant, vagrant occurrence and isolated area of distribution. Tiny flags and half flags show endemic and near endemic species. Status as critically endangered, endangered, and vulnerable is also indicated.

Note: I came across a sentence in the description of the American Pygmy Kingfisher that nobody could understand: "American Pygmy is found singly and generally perches close to the surface of shallow water, and sometimes even feeds at stagnant pools; it can be confiding." p.158. Confiding???

Also, a sentence on page xii of the introduction seems odd and unnecessary: "Brazilians speak Portuguese, and are helpful, friendly, and full of fun." The Portuguese part is fine, but the remainder of the sentence seems a bit strange, to me.

To date, the "Wildlife Conservation Society Birds of Brazil: The Pantanal and Cerrado" appears to be the best field guide to buy for touring that area, as well as neighboring regions. It worked for me.
5つ星のうち 5.0 A superb field guide 2014/5/8

This is an excellent guide to a restricted (but still quite large) part of South America. The paintings are quite good, better than those in the best field guide for the whole country by Ber van Perlo (but I would still highly recommend that book). I consider Guy Tudor one of the best bird-field-guide artists of all time, and this book shows his talents very well. The text by Robert Ridgely, already known as THE expert on South American birds, is very well done, presenting essential information in the telegraphic style necessary for a book with so many bird species. I like the brief comments about typical behavior very much, as behavior is often such an important clue to identification. I can't critique the maps, but they are certainly functional, and I know how hard it is to draw the lines at the edges of ranges. Well done, Wildlife Conservation Society!
