About this book

The common tern has been extensively studied, but this is the first study to examine the breeding and social behaviour of more than 40 colonies for over fifteen years. Focusing on behavioural, ecological, and sociobiological studies of colony dynamics, the breeding biology, and interspecific interactions of common terns, the authors examine the evolution and adaptive significance of coloniality.
