Illustrates where, how and why tropical birds are so different from temperate zone birds, examines behavioural adaptations of tropical birds in timing of breeding, life history traits, mating systems and parental care, territoriality, communication and biotic interactions and emphasizes the many gaps in our knowledge of tropical birds.
This original and valuable book will help to broaden the understanding of avian ecology throughout the world. D. Flaspohler, Michigan Technical University, in CHOICE (January 2002) "This is a stimulating book and a rich source of research ideas written at a level suitable for undergraduates..." -Jeremy Lindsell in IBIS (2001) "The principal strength of this book is the authors' breadth of experience, which provides credibility to their claims. ...I recommend Behavioral Ecology of Tropical Birds to budding behavioral ecologists who are on the prowl for research topics that may alter the directions of the field, and to ecologists in the temperate zone who wonder why their colleagues go to the bother and expense of mounting behavioral research projects in the tropics." -Tom A. Langen, Clarkson University, in ECOLOGY (November 2001)
