About this book

A History of Polish Birds is the first book to summarize our knowledge of bird remains from all fossil and subfossil sites in Poland, compare it with books and papers on the fauna of Poland published since the 16th century, and contrast this with the recent status of each species. It should prove to be an invaluable resource for avian palaeontologists, zooarchaeologists and ornithologists, as well as serious birdwatchers who wish to broaden their knowledge. The book is more than just a catalogue or an encyclopedia. It includes entries on every species and summarizes their occurrence in Poland from the earliest fossil records to the present day. User-friendly additions such as stratigraphic charts, a graphical presentation of the temporal distribution of all avian taxa in Poland and a complete list of fossil and subfossil sites with bird remains make it easy to follow even for non-specialists. Numerous illustrations help the scientific content.

Media reviews

"[...] The publication is [...] very valuable, and I think it will be repeatedly cited and used not only by numerous ornithologists and palaeo-ornithologists, but also by specialists representing other branches of science, as well as others interested in the topic."
- Krzysztof Stefania, Ibis 156, 2014

"This book is the first work to summarise knowledge of bird remains from all fossil and subfossil sites in Poland. These data are compared with published work on the Polish avifauna between the sixteenth and twentieth centuries, with particular emphasis on the changing status of each species. [...] The book includes entries on every species and summarises their occurrence in Poland from the earliest fossil records. The addition of charts and tables, and also a complete list of fossil and subfossil sites complement the book. It is certainly an important resource for avian paleontologists and ornithologists, as well as birdwatchers who wish to broaden their knowledge of the avifauna of historical and pre-historical Europe."
