About this book

Language: Spanish, also available in English

El Libro de las Rapaces is a work intended for all audiences. In its 23 chapters it gives the reader information from leading experts on European raptors that has never before been told.

All the basic information for each species treated is summarized in a table at the end of each chapter, with the body of the text discussing current management experiences and unique features.

El Libro de las Rapaces is illustrated with the most spectacular pictures ever published in books of this format. Established scientists, known for their expertise and publications, give rigorous but entertaining contributions to the work. In addition, stories and anecdotes told by the most intrepid naturalists complete the information in this book, and give a different perspective.

Media reviews

"[...] The texts are uneven, not only in content, but also in style. Also contributing to this uneven quality is the fact that the list of references included at the end of the book for further reading, which might have formed the basis for the texts, seems idiosyncratic. However, despite this heterogeneity, or maybe even precisely because of it, the book provides not only a diverse (not necessarily thorough) view of raptor species in Spain and some of the studies or conservation programmes carried out there, but also of the variety of people that are passionate, both professionally and personally, about this fascinating group of birds.

El Libro de las Rapaces is aimed at a wide readership and hopes to encourage people to continue watching, studying and conserving this wonderful group of birds. The strong conservation interest of the editor is shown not only in the texts, but also in the fact that part of the income from sales is to be donated to the ‘Proyecto Percnopterus’: the creation of a supplementary feeding place aimed at studying the effect of these sites on the breeding success of Egyptian Vultures, and on the capacity of the species to expand its breeding distribution."
