Formatted Abstract/Summary
This Action Plan covers the pheasants, a group of one African species and 50 Asian ground-dwelling birds, found within Asia from the Caucasus in the west, through the Indian Subcontinent and the Himalayas to eastern China and Japan. They also occur through Southeast Asia to Flores, east of Java. They are largely dependent on forested habitats, making them highly vulnerable to deforestation and habitat degradation. As large, ground-dwelling birds they are also widely hunted for food, plumage, and the live bird trade. Consequently, many species are threatened. The first version of this Action Plan was published to cover 1995–99, and this second edition provides an update. It reviews the conservation status of pheasants and highlights recent conservation achievements (Chapter 1). It then documents the nature and extent of threats to all individual pheasant species (Chapters 2 and 3), and outlines a new set of priority tasks for implementation during 2000–04 (Chapter 4).
