This book represents an attempt to lay out the subject in its full scope, with chapters reviewing and assessing the various subjects written as consensus documents by several leading workers representing various views.

"Ecology and Management of Neotropical Migratory Birds provides the best review yet of the scientific issues surrounding migrants."--Science
"The 17 chapters of this book provide a detailed examination of ecology and management of neotropical migratory birds. . .Ornithologists and conservation biologists will be interested in this book. Recommended." --Wildlife Activist
"This volume seeks to summarize an aspect of our knowledge of birds that largely breed in temperate North America and migrate into Latin America. . . .The editors and most of the authors did an excellent job, serving well those in conservation biology. . . .I do enthusiastically recommend this volume to anyone interested in the ecology and management of landbirds. . .A good source of current knowledge of trends of landbird populations and some potential causes of these changes. . .A good foundation for further work."--Ecology
"Overall, this book is very satisfying, with much information presented in a very
