Madagascar is a promised destination for ornithologists or twitchers with its endemic bird species, nesting birds, and 5 ENDEMIC FAMILIES. This book gives also an overview of the richness and originality of Madagascar’s biodiversity, as the authors consider that the endemic cichlids are one of its important components and that they cannot be properly enjoyed and understood if one does not have some knowledge of the other remarkable living beings found on the island.

      This is the second major sound collection dealing with the Malagasy region, following the four-CD set published by Huguet & Chappuis in (and reviewed by Dowsett-Lemaire ). But the scope of this single CD is rather different as, unlike the very broad coverage of Huguet & Chappuis' collection, it focuses on species endemic to Madagascar . On the plus side, the book is over pages long and gives a lot of information about the avifauna of this region. The book understandably emphasizes the endemic birds of the area but also gives surprisingly full accounts of introduced species. On the whole, a very nice book/5(8).
