This book contains a wealth of research combined with almost fifty years of field experience to present this comprehensive  review of resident and migratory avian species in the coastal mangrove forests of the Indian-Bangladesh Sundarbans and hinterland. The book gives a general account of the diversity and distribution of resident and migratory avian species with special emphasis on their ecology in a changing climate.

It provides a detailed reference source, covering mangroves’ spatial heterogeneity and bird diversity; impact of mangroves and non-mangrove vegetation on the birds including provision for food, shelter and reproduction; role of birds in the food web; relationships among bird communities; and impacts on the  habitats of the birds. The study of the 580 species in the region shows those better able to adapt to changing environments, and those more sensitive to climate change.  Species that are relatively short-lived but reproduce very easily, are able to adapt and respond quickly to changes.

Threatened species may be able to recover if governments, wildlife officials, non-government conservationists and other stakeholders can act quickly to support them.


Author: Jayanta Kumar Mallick is a Retired ‘Group A’ Officer, Wildlife Wing, Forest Directorate, Government of West Bengal, India. Coastal Mangrove Avifauna is his fourth book on the ecology of the Sundarbans, with Ethics International Press.
