About this book

The aim of Bird Ecology and Conservation is to outline the main methods and techniques available to ornithologists. A general shortage of information about available techniques is greatly hindering progress in avian ecology and conservation. Currently this sort of information is disparate and difficult to locate with much of it widely dispersed in books, journals and grey literature. Sutherland and his editorial team bring together in a single authoritative source all the ornithological techniques the avian community will ever need. For use by graduate students, researchers and practising conservationists worldwide.

"[...] a very comprehensive review of a really interesting subject [...] This book is ideal for graduate students and researchers, and will also serve as a useful tool for the growing number of environmental consultants and professional conservationists."
British Wildlife, December 2004

"This is an excellent text in its field [...] Although aimed at the specialist (who should see this as a must-buy text) the material is accessible enough for the keen amateur or student to gain much from the work. A text such as this bodes well for the rest of the series."
TE News

"This book is the first of an intended series each of which will treat a taxonomic group, or a broad subject area [...] Given the growing importance of conservation, especially in the developing world, such a series is welcome and timely, and potentially influential [...] I look forward to more in this series."
