At last, a first-rate comprehensive guide to the birds of Oceania. All species (including those that have become extinct in historical times) known from Micronesia, Polynesia (except Easter Island and New Zealand) and Fiji are covered in the text; all but the accidentals and a few poorly known extinct forms are illustrated. The concise taxonomically arranged species accounts, emphasizing identification, are followed by the plates in a combined taxonomic and geographical arrangement. A "hypothetical list," regional checklists, and maps and a glossary are appended. Based on extensive field work in the region, this authoritative handbook is highly recommended. Paul B.
