Toucans of the Americas
Herculano Alvarenga & Eduardo Brettas
A perfect match of art and science. Toucans, Toucanets and Aracaris. Full-page watercolours in incredible detail and colour depict the exotic and eye-catching birds which live in the forests of the Americas from Mexico to Southern Brazil. Each species is shown on a plate in magnificent illustrations, showing the birds (male and female where necessary) in their native habitat. The opposite page gives a detailed description, distribution range, habitat and more in both Portuguese and English. One section of the book is devoted to the background of the ramphastids (toucans, toucanets and aracaris). Chapters of this section deal with evolution, distribution and migration, and behaviour.
