It is with thanks to the unstinting efforts of a small team of workers in Botswana (Africa), and to the meticulous keeping and analysis of records by the author, that ornithologists and conservationists have a work which will serve as a baseline of bird distribution. The Bird Atlas of Botswana summarizes the records collected. The information is introduced by an extensive and well-researched introductory set of chapters covering the ornithology, geology, botany, and geomorphology of Botswana. This sets the scene for the distribution maps which follow, showing not only the distribution in Botswana, but also seasonal abundance and movements there, as well as the distribution of each species throughout Africa.
