The objective of this book is to synthesise biogeographic and phylogenetic data for all species, extinct or extant, in the form of a comprehensive atlas. The information for each species is presented on detailed maps, along with a summary text and figures on systematics, range, numbers, trends, and natural history. Many monographs on seabirds (albatrosses, petrels, boobies, etc.) and landbirds (pigeons, reed warblers, swiftlets, etc.) include Polynesian species. However works devoted to the complete avifauna of Eastern Polynesia are few. Birds of Eastern Polynesia represents a necessary and original ornithological synthesis of all the available literature on Eastern Polynesia birds, including many difficult-to-find reports written in French, as well as unpublished data gathered from local ornithologists and biologists.

It contains also unpublished data collected by the authors during numerous fieldtrips in Eastern Polynesia and during visits to museums, the major one being the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH, New York), which holds the largest collection of Pacific islands birds.
