About this book

Comprehensive work on penguins to be published. The topics covered include breeding, feeding and foraging, behaviour and evolution, energetics and physiology, and fossil evidence.

The papers included in this review volume represent a valuable expansion of presentations from the First International Conference on Penguins... This is an important book. It is of value to those interested in penguins, but more generally to those interested in the processes involved. Each chapter is loaded with information, much of it gleaned under difficult field conditions. --THE AUK
