Book Description

8 April 2011 1444334824 978-1444334821
Conservation of Tropical Birds has been written by four conservation biologists whose expertise spans all the tropical regions of the world. It is the first book to cover all the major issues in tropical bird conservation. Current problems faced by tropical bird conservationists are summarised and potential solutions outlined based on the results of case studies. Birds are key indicators of ecosystem health, and such a well–studied group of organisms, that they provide an excellent lens through which to examine global conservation problems caused by phenomena such as climate change, declines in ecosystem services, habitat loss, fires, overexploitation, and invasive species. Therefore, the book also provides an engaging synopsis of the general issues in conservation and the problems faced by other wildlife. This book serves as an important resource and companion to all people interested in observing and conserving birds in the tropics and elsewhere.

Product Description

Review

“The volume is thus likely to be of particular use to early–career researchers, but also to fill a useful role on many other bookshelves as a quick reference guide.”  ( The Quarterly Review of Biology , 1 March2013) “In general, the book is a remarkable achievement, with all chapters providing a succinct, factual, well–referenced, and state–of–the–art review of all relevant topics.” ( The Auk , 2012) “If you want to learn a lot about bird ecology and conservation research in the tropics, this is a good place to start.”  ( The International Journal of Avian Science , 2012) "Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper–division undergraduates through professionals." (Choice, 1 November 2011) "This book serves as an important resource and companion to all people interested in observing and conserving birds in the tropics and elsewhere". (The Birdbooker Report, 10 May 2011)
