I've had this for some time now, it's not bad and is currently, AFAIK, the first and still only book to illustrate Cambodian Tailorbird?

HBW Illustrated Checklist Vol 2 has illustrations on page 431. So the HBW original volumes should have more info as well.

I was thinking more from a field guide perspective but I didn't consider HBW, I wouldn't fancy carrying on of those around!

I have long ago stopped buying such photo books as they tend to be looked at just once (at best), but then they clog up bookshelf space for years or even decades. That is not to say that I do not think they contain great photos. But my day only has 24 hours!

To be honest, however good the quality, not sure many real birders would buy such a book, there are plenty of them.

Getting impatient for Mongolia and Japan now not to mention the latest HBM

Not one I'll be seeking out neither, though I'm sure some superb images in there.

Though it won't be ready until late next year I look forward to the Wild Guides ladybird guide with Lewington's masterful illustrations. It will be good to have the smaller species without established English names included as these rarely get coverage.

High quality images, yes, but showing animals detached from their habitats in a sort of aseptic surrounding... Really doesn't appeal to me, and I think from the conservation point of view this is a shot on the foot (imo), as species can only survive as such if their habitats are preserved. And habitats are just totaly ignored in this concept. This looks and feels to me as a high quality photographic catalog for a zoo. In short (very short due to current lack of time) that's what I think of it.

Belonging on an Island: Birds, Extinction, and Evolution in Hawai`i

A lively, rich natural history of Hawaiian birds that challenges existing ideas about what constitutes biocultural nativeness and belonging

This natural history takes readers on a thousand-year journey as it explores the Hawaiian Islands' beautiful birds and a variety of topics including extinction, survival, conservationists and their work, and, most significantly, the concept of belonging. Author Daniel Lewis, an award-winning historian and globe-traveling amateur birder, builds this lively text around the stories of four species – the Stumbling Moa-Nalo, the Kaua'i 'O'o, the Palila, and the Japanese White-Eye.

Lewis offers innovative ways to think about what it means to be native and proposes new definitions that apply to people as well as to birds. Being native, he argues, is a relative state influenced by factors including the passage of time, charisma, scarcity, utility to others, short-term evolutionary processes, and changing relationships with other organisms. Belonging on an Island also describes how bird conservation started in Hawai'i and the naturalists and environmentalists who did extraordinary work.

Scheduled for May 2018

The 7th edition of Walker's Mammals of the World is scheduled for June 2018.

Walker's Mammals of the World: Monotremes, Marsupials, Afrotherians, Xenarthrans, and Sundatherians

Since its first publication in 1964, Walker's Mammals of the World has become a favourite guide to the natural world for general readers and professionals alike. Since publication of the 2-volume set, several spin-off titles have been published focusing on specific groups. This new Walker's volume is another such title, and is a completely revised and updated compendium of information on five of the earliest clades to diverge from ancient mammal stock. Uniquely comprehensive in inimitable Walker's style, it incorporates a full account of every genus that lived in the past 5,000 years. Every named species of each genus is listed in systematic order and accompanied by detailed descriptions of past and present range.

This book includes
- 500+ full-colour images throughout – a first for any Walker's volume
- citations to more than 2,200 new references
- extensive bioconservation data, with discussion of every species in an IUCN Red List threatened category

The book's thorough updates reflect 20 years of advances in our knowledge of taxonomy, ecology, behaviour, life history, and conservation. Substantive changes to 100% of previously existing generic accounts, plus the addition of 17 entirely new generic accounts, double the information in the last edition on the 19 orders covered. The black-and-white illustrations of earlier editions have been replaced by over 500 new colour images, including superb photos of live individuals and scientifically prepared paintings of extinct genera.

Remaining true to Ernest P. Walker's vision, the text smoothly combines in-depth scholarship with a popular, readable style to preserve and enhance what the Washington Post called a "landmark of zoological literature".

I don't know, to be honest, Andy but knowing what a thorough chap Ernest Garcia is and that he'd scarcely be updating it with minor changes only I would imagine that there will be some substantive changes. Naturally, some sites will be relatively unchanged but I would expect a good few new sites to be added (e.g. places like Laguna de los Tollos - once an important reserve, then wrecked by quarrying but now restored).
