Renowned for their elaborate and dazzling plumages, the birds of paradise (Paradisaeidae) and bowerbirds (Ptilonohynchidae) exhibit some of the most astonishing behaviours in the avian kingdom. The former is the most iconic group of birds found in New Guinea, while the bowerbirds extend into Australia, and are perhaps best known for the males' construction of avenue bowers, used to tempt females on the forest floor. This comprehensive monograph is dedicated to these two families, combining the product of more than two decades of research and scholarship with original observations by the author and many other knowledgeable contributors. Birds of Paradise and Bowerbirds is the ultimate reference to these two groups. It provides a thorough guide to their identification, taxonomy and ecology, with detailed distribution maps accompanying the text. A series of beautifully illustrated plates by Richard Allen cover all of the 108 recognised taxa in these groups, with these supplemented by more than 200 photographs covering a range of racial and age-related plumage variety. This book is an indispensable addition to the libraries of all birders and ornithologists interested in these sensational birds.

For more than twenty years Kaisa and Stan Breeden have lived in the rainforest of northeast Queensland and seen its wonders unfold. The rainforest is also where they developed and refined their photographic techniques. This book is their intimate and affectionate portrait of Australia's tropical rainforest and its variety of life. Using artistic and technical skills gained through many years' experience and experimentation, the Breedens continue their quest to capture nature as a contemplation. The mystery and beauty of the wet tropics are brought to life in this digital dossier of one of Australia's greatest natural treasures. As the Breedens explore the legacy of the Gondwana forests - the remaining strip of tropical rainforest between the Coral Sea and the Great Driving Range - their pictures and text join to evoke wonder and learning. The Breeden's inventive photographic techniques combine focus stacking, HDR and macro panoramas, creating visions of great depth, texture and clarity. Some subjects are the result of the combination of 25 or more photographs. Capturing the rainforest at its most vivid, this is an exceptional and uplifting exploration of Australia's tropical rainforest.
