This book is the most accurate, comprehensive, and technically sophisticated publication on the birds of Armenia and Caucasia in general. Armenia, a country the size of the state of Maryland, has 346 species of birds, an extraordinary number when compared with the 550 species in the whole of Europe and the 750 species in the area encompassed by the former Soviet Union. The contents include: (1) simple and functional text descriptions of 346 species; (2) 61 plates illustrating each species with unequaled accuracy of color, scale, and composition, and (3) distribution maps documenting the location of species records and assessing their abundance. This guide brings our knowledge up to date and also makes the Armenian birds accessible to the world like never before. This work was conducted to promote responsible environmental management and to ensure environmental health and the conservation of Armenian natural resources through the appreciation, enjoyment, and study of birds.
