Publication

Description:”>This is the first photographic guide book to the birds of Mongolia ever published in English. This book helps you to identify the 160 species of birds in different natural zones. The photographs of bird species which are characteristic in each zone and commonly occur in the habitats were shown in the book. The name of species in nine dif¬ferent languages, short descriptive text for breeding, summering, wintering and migration periods, body length (from tip of the bill to the tip of the tail), age and sex, global and regional status and photographers’ name were writ¬ten. The given months for breeding, summering, wintering and migration are general and highly varied depending on differences between habitats, weather condition and breeding behaviour of birds for each zone and habi¬tat in the country. Shots of the unique action for the bird species and mystery birds were also included in this book in order to give the knowledge to readers about special behaviours of the species and to improve their bird identification skills in the field.

SUMMARY CONSERVATION ACTION PLANS FOR MONGOLIAN BIRDS

Description: This summary action plans are intended to highlight species of particular concern and to alert policy-makers, conservationists, and government and planning authorities of actions that will help to ansure that all birds of Mongolia maintain viable populations in the future.
From a total of 476 native species of Mongolian birds that were assessed (Annex I), 10% are categorised as regionally threatened; 0.6% are categorised as Critically Endangered (CR), 1.7% as Endangered (EN), 3.3% as Vulnerable (VU), and 4.4% as Near Threatened (NT). Almost 90% of Mongolian birds are categorised as Least Concern (LC) excluding Data Deficient and Not Applicable categories. Each species assessed as threatened is the subject of a summary conservation action plan in this document

SAKER FALCON IN MONGOLICA

Description:Saker Falcon (Falco cherrug) is one of the largest raptor among falcons. In Mongolian history, there are two falcons used for hunting and using it as a totem. “This is the second monography about a bird, has ever written in Mongolia” describes Tseveenmyadag, one of the leading ornithologist in Mongolia.
In this book, the author, S. Gombobaatar, writes detailly about classification, morphology, ecology, conservation of this internationally and regionally threatened species using his last 20 years work for it. For many years Sakers were exported to the Middle East for falconry but in 2013 Mongolian Government made the decision to stop the trade. Electrocution on power lines and poisons in their prey are now the main threats to this species. Sakers occur in habitats with natural cliffs or power line poles, especially in areas where Brandt’s Voles and Mongolian Gerbils are at high density. They also prey on other small rodents, ground squirrels and birds. Adult Sakers winter in Mongolia and young birds migrate to North-West China. This raptor is distributed throughout steppe zone of Mongolia and in 2012 Mongolian Government announced it as the National Bird of Mongolia

NATIONAL REPORT ON THE CONVENTION ON WETLANDS OF INTERNATIONAL IMPORTANCE,ESPECIALLY AS WATERFOWL HABITAT RAMSAR CONVENTION

Description:Mongolia joined the Convention on April 8, 1998, and has been fulfilling its obligations and participating in the convention’s activities ever since. Currently, there are 11 wetlands in Mongolia which have been designed as Ramsar sites: Mongol Daguur (1997), Valley of the Lakes (1998), Ogii lake (1998), Terkhiin Tsagaan Lake (1998), Airag Lake (1999), Khar-Us Lake (1999), Achit Lake and its surrounding wetlands (2004), Buir Lake and its surrounding wetlands (2004), Ganga Lake and its surrounding wetlands (2004), Uvs Lake and its surrounding wetlands (2004), and Lakes in the Khurkh-Khuiten river valley (2004).

Due to ongoing climate change, the shrinkage of wetlands and water bodies has been intensifying and has become a concern not only for governmental organizations, but also for individuals. With this report, the authors are presenting the main findings of their analysis of the state of the wetlands both present and past, which have been designated as Convention sites

A DICTIONARY OF VERTEBRATE ANIMALS OF MONGOLIA

Description:This is the first completion of the dictionary in different languages of the names of 64 species of fishes, 6 species of amphibians, 21 species of reptiles, 487 species of birds and 128 species of mammals have been recorded in Mongolia. However, until the publication of this book there has been no compilation of the names of all vertebrate species occurring in Mongolia. The completion of the dictionary in different languages for known vertebrate species in Mongolia is practically and scientifically significant to Mongolian and foreign scientists, students, guides and tourists, as it will allow us to convey accurate information on species composition and taxonomy, to correctly identify species, and to create a database of vertebrate species occurring within the country. Therefore, we have initiated and completed this book for your interest.

A FIELD GUIDE TO THE MAMMALS OF MONGOLIA

Description: A field guide to mammals would be useful for young biologists as they learn how to identify mammals present in an area. The field guide can be used to train students and older school children, and can also be used as further information for national park rangers.
This book is designed to give an overview of the main sign you are likely to find for each species, or taxonomic group. All text is written in both Mongolian and English. On each of the following pages you will see a picture of the animal, and also a picture of its tracks, scat and skull. As it is relatively rare to see the animal itelf, these three things are among the most obvious kinds of sign, indicating an animal has been in the area. In the last section of the book there is a more detailed section about other types of sign, such as feeding sign and burrows, and at the end there is a glossary, for some specialist terms in the text.

MONGOLIAN RED LIST OF BIRDS

Description:“This impressive volume… is also the most comprehensive source of information on Mongolian birds produced to date. It is a resource that will be used by everyone from students to policy makers to conservation planners to leading ornithologists” describes Prof. Jonathan Baillie, Director of Conservation Programmes, ZSL.
This Red List contains all known Mongolian birds and highlights their status within Mongolia, accompanied by other information such as their global and regional distributions, legal status, habitats, ecology, breeding biology, dominant threats and conservation measures. Species have been assessed using the ‘IUCN Red List Categories and Criteria’ (IUCN, 2001), which incorporate quantitative thresholds to categorise species in terms of their risk of extinction (Least Concern, Near Threatened, Vulnerable, Endangered, Critically Endangered, Extinct in the Wild, and Extinct). The assessments were carried out by over 40 leading experts on Mongolian birds, gathered at the Mongolian Biodiversity Databank worshop from September 30 to October 5, 2009
