About this book

A unique synthesis of ecological information on all 4,037 species of birds found from Mexico south to Tierra del Fuego. In tables that cover over 300 pages, including much unpublished data, the authors summarize details of 40 key ecological parameters for each bird species. Moreover, because bird communities are good indicators of habitat type and condition, they also analyze the bird species of major habitats from a conservation perspective and develop specific guidelines to illustrate how governments, conservation organisations, and wildlife managers can use this ecological information to anchor conservation strategies in sound biological reality.
