About this book

&i;`Throughout the book, some of the key problems faced by raptors around the World are highlighted, including illegal poisoning, mortality on electricity powerlines and the deliberate killing of them on migration. This makes for sobering reading, particularly for British-based readers used to the improving status of raptor populations in recent decades. Inevitably, there is some variation in quality among contributions, but the volume has been edited and produced to a very high standard.'&o; Ian Carter British Birds, Volume 94, Number 1, January 2001
