About this book

Provides a comprehensive update following two distinct threads. The status and conservation needs of herons are first presented on a regional basis, in a series of chapters set at continental or subcontinental scale. Over 200 biologists and heron conservationists - many associated with the Heron Specialist Group sponsored by Wetlands International and IUCN - have contributed to the data summarised here and these very latest census and survey results provide the most up-to-date and detailed picture of heron populations currently available. Chapters discussing several critical issues in heron conservation follow, often focusing on the international nature of the problem.

Media reviews
Kushland and Hafner, the editors of Heron Conservation, have produced an up-to-date, informative review of current knowledge on this subject, but more importantly, they have created a functional tool with which to shape the future conservation of these birds. ...this book will for the foreseeable future be the definitive reference for everybody working on herons.
--Francesco Pezzo in IBIS (2001)
..".This book is meant to summarize what has been learned about the world's herons, particularly in the roughly 15 years since the last synthesis in "The Herons Handbook...This is truly a worldwide cooperative effort with contributions from 19 ornithologists from all continents (except Antarctica)...Anyone with even a modest interest in herons or conservation should have this book. The nearly 1,350 references are more than worth the price..."
--William E. Davis, Jr., Boston University, in BIRDING (December 2000)
"With chapters written by some of the leading authorities on herons, this book is a must for anyone with a serious interest in the conservation of these magnificent birds."
--WILDFOWL WETLANDS (Winter 2000)
"Owing to growth in research, knowledge of herons and egrets has increased enormously in the past 20 years. In my view, the editors and authors have done a good job in pulling together and synthesising this new informaton. The book is nicely produced and reasonable priced."
--I. Newton in BRITISH BIRDS (September 2000)
