The outstanding partnership of Australians Joseph Forshaw and illustrator William T Cooper has produced another landmark publication. Birdwatchers visiting forested areas of Africa are captivated by brilliantly-coloured turacos. But there has been a dearth of studies of wild populations. This volume brings together published material, personal field observations and unpublished accounts. It is the first fully illustrated monograph on Turacos to be published since 1860. The foreword is by Hilary Fry with a chapter on Turacos in aviculture by Robert Berry and William Todd.
