About this book

The first synthesis of current knowledge of forest and wetland birds in the world's southernmost forests, Magellanic Sub-Antarctic Ornithology contains both original work by Rozzi and Jimenez and the results of a decade of research conducted by the scientists associated with the Omora Park. The first part is a guide to the forest bird populations and habitats in the Reserve, and a summary of the data recorded for the bird species captured with mist-nets and banded. The information is given in two pages for each species, with English, Spanish, and scientific names, as well as a full-colour photo, distribution maps, a table with original morphological information, a figure indicating abundance rates, and a brief description of the species' main features. The second part is a selection of twenty-two published articles on ornithological research at Omora Park during its first decade of studies, from 2000 to 2010. Eleven of the twenty-two articles were originally published in Spanish and are here translated and available to a larger readership. The reprinting of these articles in one place provides interested scientists, students, and wildlife managers a unique and convenient resource.

"This book has two important sources of information: original morphological data and the compilation of all publications about the birds in the southern extreme of South America. I think the book will have great significance."
- Victor R. Cueto, professor of natural sciences, Universidad de Buenos Aires, Argentina

"A wonderfully rich and in-depth contribution to Sub-Antarctic Ornithology."
- Julie Hagelin, senior research scientist, University of Alaska, Fairbanks
