Subject: [VTBIRD] The most comprehensive atlas at a discount price
> The "Atlas of the Breeding Birds of Southern Québec" is a monumental book
> which has been published in French in 1995 and in English in 1996. That's
> an essential source of information about the Québec avifauna and related
> subjects. One of the most comprehensive bird atlases in the World, the
> pages book includes, aside the species by species very complete treatment,
> other detailed chapters about the ornithological history, the concerned
> area (physiography, hydrography, climate, glaciations, subregions, soils,
> vegetation, wet habitats), the effects of Man presence on the environment,
> its natural modifications, the preservation of the environment, the
> methodology, the bird taxonomy, the bird diversity according to habitats
> and some other subjects. And the atlas includes maps for each species,
> graphs, tables plus more than 1400 photos and some 5000 references. The
> book has been edited by Jean Gauthier & Yves Aubry, but is in fact the
> collective work of the Québec ornithological community (including
> ornithologists and birders) which has provided the contents. The datas are
> coming from near to 1000 contributors and have been taken to the published
> form by almost 130 writers. The French edition is now out of print. Copies
> of the English edition are remaining and must be sold quickly because it
> expensive for the AQGO (the Association québécoise des groupes
> d'ornithologues), a non-profit organization, to keep them in a warehouse.
> That's why, we are offering them at the third of the original price what
> means 50$can (60,99$can with GST and shipping) instead of 150$ (167,94$
> If you are interested, go to http://www.aqgo.qc.ca/ and click on the link
> in English (the second one on the page) to obtain all the details about
> to order the atlas.
> There will not be a updated edition before many years. The essential work
> which would lead to it is still not planned.
> I think I can post that message here because it is more an information
> which can be of interest for birders than a business message and because
> all the profits, going in a special funds managed by AQGO, will be used to
> sustain projects relevant to bird protection.
> Good birding...
