About this book

Cockatoos are large, intelligent and attractive birds. Of the 21 recognised species, 14 occur in Australia, with 3 of these also found in New Guinea. Seven species are distributed across the islands of South-East Asia. While many species are common or abundant, an increasing number face extinction due to habitat loss, the illegal bird trade and global warming.

Extensively illustrated, 'Cockatoos' looks at the ecology and conservation of these iconic birds, including their evolution, distribution, movements, feeding and reproduction. It examines the pest status of cockatoos, the impact of the illegal bird trade and the role played by aviculturists in cockatoo conservation programs.
