He was educated at University College, Oxford and Trinity College, Dublin, where he studied natural sciences, going on to University College, Galway, where he obtained a PhD in ecology of bird parasites while lecturing in Zoology. For twenty years he worked as an ecologist and was responsible for Ireland’s National Heritage Inventory, developing nature conservation policy, later also as special environmental advisor to two Irish Prime Ministers. An all-round field naturalist and ecologist, he specialises in wildfowl and seabirds, enjoying the arduous life of fieldwork on islands, in the Arctic and other wild places.

As a non-bird expert I find this book along with the other bird ones are written in a language which makes the topics very understandable. It is quite amazing that standards are maintained at the 123rd issue!.

outstanding book from masters in the field 11 Oct. 2013
By John Anderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This volume is the long-awaited summary of a life-time in the field. Ian Nisbet has spent much of the past 30+ years examining the lifetime reproductive success and general ecology of Common Terns in the Northeastern United States, and here he and his co-author give us the results of that experience. The text is witty and insightful and packed with detail, and seems destined to be a real classic along the lines of Tinbergen's Herring Gulls World -another member of this illustrious series from Collins. The book itself is beautifully produced, with a lush cover that I like leaving on my office desk to pique the curiosity of my students (except that I am so frequently diving into it to review details of avian ecology. This is a "must have" for any student of seabirds -or indeed anyone interested in long term studies of life histories!
