Many scientific bird names describe a bird's habits, habitat, distribution or plumage, while other birds are named after their discoverers or in honour of prominent ornithologists. This extraordinary work of reference lists the genus and species name for almost every species of bird in the world as well as information about its meaning and derivation. In the case of eponyms brief biographical details are provided for each of the personalities commemorated in the scientific names. This fascinating book is an outstanding information resource which will both educate and inform, and may even help readers to understand birds better.
