    Best bird guides by region...Asia

    Why not making another recommendation then? just concluding that coverage is not the only criteria is not very useful is it?

    Best bird guides by region...Asia

    Yes of course it is. Using an SE Asian guide means you would have to leaf through lots of pages of species not found in Singapore.

    HANDBOOK of the BIRDS of the WORLD question

    Ornithology Book Classifieds group on Facebook is probably worth a shot. Two complete 16-volume sets and several individual volumes have been up for sale in that group in the past two years. I would also put it up for sale on Ebay.

    Best bird guides by region...North America

    Nat Geo was my first field guide and I have very much enjoyed the updated editions so this is disappointing news. I must have missed that Disney bought National Geographic Publishing, but it explains a lot seeing as Disney seemingly ruins everything they touch these days.

    Costa Rican Taxonomy

    I worked extensively on plant taxonomy in Hawaii prior to retiring and do agree that it is important to include phylogeny when describing new species, however it seems to me that these days many people working on taxonomy is more interested sitting in front of a computer in the lab solely...

    Costa Rican Taxonomy

    Lynx Edicions - What Next ?

    Aim having a really hard time making any sense of the direction that Lynx Nature Books (as they are called now) is taking. They claim there is no economy in publishing field guides as publication costs and demands have made it unsustainable. At the same time they are announcing second editions...
