A good decision was to repeat illustrations for all of the endemics together for each country or group of islands in the introductory pages.
Birds of New Zealand, Hawaii, Central and West Pacific (Collins Field Guide)
New Zealand is already well covered by field guides which offer more detail than this, so I can't see this book being used for a trip there. That book covers the other species seen across the various island groups, but it does not offer distribution maps so it could be argued that this new book is more user-friendly by marrying up the text and illustrations. However most people will want the more extensive information in the Princeton book. My disappointment is that this book could have been so much better.
The inclusion of New Zealand has used up valuable space and the whole production could have been spread over more pages and perhaps a bigger page size. Sadly because of these limitations, and because there is an adequate book available already, it is hard to see this book attracting a lot of interest. Ber van Perlo has written and illustrated numerous books, including the highly successful " Birds of Southern Africa ". He studied garden and landscape architecture at the Agricultural University of Wageningen in the Netherlands before working as a geographer and physical planner with the National Forestry Service of the Netherlands.
