Product description

Review

The text is certainly very readable, is bang up to date, and usefully provides 'key references' and 'concepts' as notes in the margin, where relevant. I also liked the 'flight path feature', which provides clear cross-referencing to other sections of the book with related topics. (Ian Carter, British Birds)

[A] well produced volume, and a useful reference for both university students and keener birdwatchers. (BBC Wildlife Magazine)

Combining the threads of biology, ecology, behaviour and conservation, this is an exceptional one-stop shop for anyone who wants to know more about birds. (BTO News)

...an excellent digest of its subject, combining as it does the long back catalogue of ornithological research with a pleasing range of recent developments ... a well-produced volume, and a useful reference for both university students and keener birdwatchers. (Dominic Couzens, BBC Wildlife)
