Illustrated by Ian Willis
The ruff offers an extreme example of a social system widespread in birds and other animals; brilliantly plumaged males compete on communal display grounds or leks for the attention of the more drab females. This monograph explores the fascinating and elaborate breeding behaviour of this intriguing bird, and places it in context with other wader species.
Digital reprint of a book originally published in 1991.
