This book, which has received a starred review from ALA Booklist, pulls together recent research on bird species and habitats to show how basic ecological principles apply in seemingly different situations. The decline of bird species in a wide range of North American habitats - forests, prairies, shrublands, mountain regions, marshes, and deserts - has inspired two decades of intense scientific study of bird ecology and conservation. Askins provides an engaging introduction to bird ecology and concepts of landscape ecology, focusing on such intriguing species as Bachman's Warbler, Red Crossbill, Mountain Plover, and Marbled Murrelet.
