About this book

Please note: not to be confused with the 2013 book by Mark Cocker by the same title.

A portfolio drawn from the world's greatest bird photographers drives the message of this book home. Birds and People is split into five chapters looking at all aspects of human's relationship with birds.

The first looks the place birds occupy in our culture – both ancient and modern and the second looks at the influence of birds in art. Then there is the use of birds for food, feathers and fertilisers; leading onto to the many ways we benefit from birds. Pest control, pollination and the growth of bird tourism – enabling some of the world's poorest countries to benefit from their rich and diverse avifauna. The final chapter explores what we can learn from studying bird behaviour; their changing habits, such as shifting their ranges closer to the poles are tangible evidence of climate change.

Birds and People is a celebration of our relationship with birds and the joy that they bring us. It's a co-publication between CEMEX, Agrupacion Sierra Madre, and BirdLife International.
