About this book

Feathers: Identification for Bird Conservation presents the feathers of 60 species of bird, of which 38 are included in Annex I of the EU's Birds Directive. In European Union Member States, these species require enhanced protection, together with their biotopes, within the framework of the NATURA 2000 network of protected areas. All of the presented diurnal species of birds of prey (Falconiformes) and owls (Strigiformes) also enjoy protection under the 1973 Washington Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Flora and Fauna (CITES). Most of them were also brought under protection by the Bonn and Berne Conventions.
