    The Quails, Partridges, and Francolins of the World de Paul A. Johnsgard(Ed. Oxford University Press) Isbn: € This is the first available reference to describe and document all known species of quails, partridges, and francolins.   The Sibley Guide to Bird Life & Behavior was conceived as a popular reference giving the average birdwatcher or student access to a broad range of information about birds. Nearly all of the information in the book is based on published research, and we acknowledge our debt to the work of countless ornithologists and naturalists. Marco Polo described Hangzhou, capital of the Southern Song, as the finest and most splendid city in the world. Situated at the southern end of the Grand Canal, Hangzhou was a natural center for trade. A lively street scene from the Beijing qingming scroll.
