Die Vögel Madagascars und der benachbarten Inselgruppen Ein Beitrag zur Zoologie der äthiopischen Region.

    Abstract

    NOTHING can be more conducive to the progress of zoological science in any country than the issue of handbooks of the different branches of its fauna in a cheap and convenient form. Such publications bring home to a multitude of observers a résumé of the facts previously known only to a few, and such as are too often scattered over the pages of periodicals and other works which can only be consulted in an extensive library. Those who are acquainted with the vast advance made towards our knowledge of the Birds of India since the issue of Dr. Jerdon's Handbook will readily admit the truth of what we say and many other examples might be adduced of the beneficial effects of similar publications.

    Die Vögel Madagascars und der benachbarten Inselgruppen. Ein Beitrag zur Zoologie der äthiopischen Region.

    Von G. Hartlaub. Pp. 425, 8vo. (Halle: Druck und Verlag von H. W. Schmidt, 1877.)
