Roberts Birds of Southern Africa has been continuously in print for some 65 years and is the most popular African natural history book of all time. The scope and depth of biological information in the revised seventh edition of Roberts far exceeds that of any previous editions.

Covers all 951 species recorded in the region and illustrates these in 80 new plates commissioned from the region’s best bird artists.

For scientists and conservationists it is a benchmark publication and is the standard reference. For birdwatchers it is an invaluable source of information to help better understand and appreciate the birds around us.
