Thailand has been described as a "zoogeographic crossroads", with an avifauna that comprises Sino-Himalayan, Indo-Burmese, Indo-Chinese and Sundaic elements. The great majority of resident landbirds occur in forests. This book reviews the status of 595 resident birds in relation to remaining forest cover and current conservation measures, and identifies those sites which, in terms of species richness, are key areas for forest bird conservation in Thailand. "Where to go to find birds, and what conditions the observer can expect" - "Wilson Bulletin". "An extremely thorough yet readable book, which sets a very high standard" - "Ibis". "If only every country in Asia had a Philip Round then every bird conservation organization would know exactly where to start. For those who have been to Thailand, plan to go or just want to increase their knowledge of the birds, this book is essential" - World Pheasant Association.
