About this book

This superb monograph looks at the fascinating double life of the penguins, from the huge Emperors of the South Pole which withstand many months of fasting through the long night of the Antarctic winter to the dainty burrow-nesting Little Penguins which come ashore by night on subtropical beaches in Australasia. Also covers the natural history of penguins and includes aspects of penguin evolution, biology, ecology and socio-biology, as well as conservation issues. A highly readable account.
