About this book

Although the Maltese Islands are very small, they are very rich in their biodiversity, not least the avifauna. Some of these birds also breed here, but owing to both natural and unnatural causes, there are some species which today no longer breed, as well as others which could breed, but do not. The lack of a national plan of action for the conservation and protection of birds and their natural habitats is one of the reasons why this international natural heritage cannot be enjoyed as it should be. To achieve this, such plans have to be drafted on the concepts and principles entrenched in international conventions for the protection of biodiversity.

Breeding Birds of the Maltese Islands gives a scientific and historical review of the natural habitats of the Maltese Islands and its breeding birds. It is intended to help pave the way for more open public dialogue to achieve a better understanding and appreciation of birds. Only then can everybody share these islands with them, while enjoying the heritage which our present generation has been entrusted to protect.

Each breeding species in Breeding Birds of the Maltese Islands is colour illustrated and accompanied by a number of line drawings, maps and some graphs. A publication which is helpful to educators, ornithologists, hunters and trappers, environmental managers, historians, legal persons, nature conservationists and melitensia collectors.
