The first comprehensive account of the biology of one of North America's most enigmatic and colourful species, which had disappeared by the mid-C20. Although it was assumed to have been exterminated by shooting, Snyder argues that exotic diseases may have been responsible. He discusses the implications of its extinction for conservation in general.
This is a wonderful compendium, caveated and collated with care. Snyder deserves great credit for a fascinating effort that comes as close as it is possible to get to the resurrection of what must have been a wonderful bird. -- Adrian Barnett California Wild Noel Snyder has now given us a well-researched epithet for North America's once and only endemic parrot. -- Stanley A.
