Africa – Birds & Birding

October/November 2004; Vol. 9, No. 5

Black Eagle Publishing (2004).
Stapled Magazine

This issue of Africa – Birds & Birding features an article about Madagascar's vangas. The seven-page article (pp28-34) by Nick Garbutt is entitled "The Vangas of Madagascar: Different by Design". The article features nine colour photographs by the author.

Article Summary from page 3

The vangas are perhaps Madagascar's most celebrated endemic family. An excellent example of adaptive radiation, their diversification has been so dramatic that the only common feature they appear to share is their co-habitation of the island.

Article Summary from page 28

Islands are often peculiar and quirky. It's their idiosyncrasies that make them special. While continental hotspots may support the greatest diversity of birds, islands are generally the home of the more unusual species: they are the realms of endemics.
