About this book

Birds in Our Lives provides glimpses of the incredible diversity of India's birds, the ecosystems where different kinds of birds are found, and the various ways - cultural and economic - in which birds have touched our lives. It gives a brief account of the history of ornithology in India. It stresses on the serious threats that bird habitats and populations face, and gives a sense of both the continued erosion of Indian birdlife, as well as the rapidly growing efforts to save it. Finally, it provides key pointers for what needs to be done if we want to save this precious natural heritage.
