Eastern Asia


China, the Japanese archipelago, the Korean peninsula and Mongolia.


63 species in the region: 25 species of pheasant, 24 partridges and 8 grouse. 19 species are endemic to the region and China is one of the most important countries in the world for Galliformes. 

Habitat and Distribution

The region is topographically diverse, containing the highest plateau in the world, deep valleys where rivers flow, and plains that have been settled in and cultivated by humans. The geographical diversity has resulted in a wide variety of forest types, grasslands and alpine habitats.


The Galliformes in this region are principally threatened by habitat loss, but hunting is also perceived to have a significant impact on wild populations
