About this book

&i;A Century of Parrots&o; tells the story of the trappers, the dealers and smugglers, and the collectors who contributed to the decline of so many parrot species; and of the conservation efforts in the last two decades of the 20th century. This well-researched cultural history includes chapters on aviculture, species trade, zoos and collections, conservation, and many more.
