This seminal work contains information on 724 bird species from East, Southeast and South Asia. Bird longevity and migrations are indicated by banding and returns collected during an eleven-year period, from 1963 until 1974. Birds have been suspected of being involved in the life cycles of several viral and rickettsial diseases. In Japan, an extensive study of the Japanese encephalitis virus suggested the involvement of migrating birds in its movements. But comprehensive information on bird migration routes in East Asia was not available. In this book the study of bird movements and their external parasites covers eleven countries and thirteen field stations. Although the banding work continued from 1963 until 1974, it has now been discontinued or reduced, except in Japan and India. Anyone interested in the distribution, movement, or survival of the birds of Asia or of the Northern Hemisphere will find this study an invaluable reference work.
