Evaluation of the state of songbird populations in the Americas, the effectiveness of conservation programs such as the Neotropical Migratory Bird Conservation Program, and the reliability and completeness of scientific research on migrant birds. He shows that many factors besides habitat loss affect bird populations and that Neotropical migrants as a group are not declining dramatically, though some species adapt to habitat alteration more successfully than others.
This book will attract a great deal of attention and some controversy, and it is very timely.... It presents a carefully and closely reasoned argument about the magnitude of the conservation problems facing migrant birds, how we can reduce these problems, and how current conservation efforts have enormous value even if there is no immediate crisis.
