About this book

Despite the continuing, often harmful changes wrought upon many natural habitats by modern development, the opportunistic and resourceful nature of many raptor species has enabled them to find a variety of ways to both adapt to and often benefit from the activities of humans. In addition, the growing concern for the health of raptor populations has increasingly led planners and land users to make special, and often innovative, arrangements to ease these impacts and to provide for the special needs of birds of prey. The cases highlighted in this book hail from North and South America, Europe, and Africa, and from a broad spectrum of species groups such as falcons, accipiters, eagles, and kites.
