The first ever Illustrated Checklist of the Birds of the World is really two works in one. It is a complete checklist whose taxonomy incorporates the most up-to-date information and an exhaustive methodology (Tobias et al. 2010) in an entirely systematic and consistent way. At the same time, it contains illustrations and distribution maps for every bird species in the world. This includes the original artwork from the HBW series, as well as hundreds of new illustrations.

  • Convenient totals for all extant and extinct taxa
  • Each species conveniently cross-referenced to the volume and page of treatment in the HBW series
  • Revised species names in French, German and Spanish, and other common names in English when appropriate
  • Colour-coded subspecies groups marked to highlight distinct forms and their relationships
  • Completely updated at the macrosystematic, genus, species and subspecies levels
  • Changes and other relevant issues fully explained under taxonomic notes of each species
  • Detailed descriptions of ranges for all species and subspecies
  • Official IUCN category of each species from the 2016 BirdLife International/IUCN Red List of Threatened Species
  • Reference numbers included in text with complete bibliographical list at the end of the volume
  • Plate layout subtly divided by species and genera for a clearer arrangement
  • Colour illustrations for all species, including for distinctive subspecies and morphs, from the HBW series with numerous corrections and new figures
  • Newly revised distribution maps with country borders included
