Building on more than twenty years' experience travelling and photographing in some of the world's remotest places, Gilles Martin offers in his new book a magnificent photographic collection of some of the most charismatic birds on the globe. Through this book, the reader is invited to plunge into the incredibly rich universe of our feathered friends. Here one can admire the capacity of emperor penguins for survival, applaud the artistic talents of Oceanic birds of paradise, learn how to identify a variable buzzard or distinguish a tree pipit from a meadow pipit, and much more. With nearly ten thousand species scattered throughout five continents, bird societies swarm with diversity. We have long been fascinated by birds' ability to fly, but they possess a multitude of other faculties of which many people are unaware. Birds of the World is structured around twelve major themes that enable readers to observe birds' evolution, migration, survival, and perception of the world. Myriam Baran-Marescot's text provides all the information and advice required for observing, identifying, and protecting birds. The result is a thrilling and informative journey into the vast avian world.
