This guide brings together, for the first time within a single volume, a comprehensive review of all the world's peasants, partridges, quail, grouse, turkeys, guineafowl, buttonquail, sandgrouse, and the enigmatic Plains-wander - over 250 species in all.

As with other volumes in the award-winning Helm Identification Guide series, this book concentrates on identification and distribution, but also highlights conservation and environmental issues. Each species is treated in detail, reflecting the extensive knowledge of the authors. The 72 colour plates by leading bird illustrators form the finest set of illustrations of these birds to date. There is also a colour distribution map for each species. Pheasants, Partridges and Grouse is a welcome addition to the Helm Identification Guide series and, more importantly, a landmark volume in the literature of this attractive and vulnerable group of birds.
