About this book

More than 30 species of plover (genus Charadrius) have provided key insights shaping theory across a wide range of ecological sub-discipline. Many of these species are also threatened because they live where human population is greatest. The editors have organized a group of international specialists to write a series of multi-authored chapters. The Ecology and Conservation of Plovers Charadrius has a strong applied emphasis. The book will be of great use to conservationists worldwide. The book is organized into sections corresponding to the annual cycle of each taxon. As such, it will use the Full Life Cycle Biology approach championed by researchers spearheading conservation of migratory species worldwide.

Biography

Mark Colwell has been a professor in the Wildlife Department at Humboldt State University (Arcata, CA) for over 25 years. His research on shorebirds for the past 35 years has resulted in over 75 peer-reviewed papers, mostly covering the behaviour, ecology and conservation of shorebirds, including the Snowy Plover. He teaches an advanced undergraduate course in Shorebird Ecology, Conservation, and Management, which was the foundation for the text-reference book published in 2010. He has been recognized by HSU as Scholar of the Year (2007) and Outstanding Professor (2013).

Susan Haig is a Senior Scientist (emerita) at the U.S. Geological Survey Forest and Rangeland Ecosystem Science Center, Professor of Wildlife Ecology at Oregon State University and a Research Associate of the Smithsonian Institution. Her work on small population biology and conservation genetics focused on shorebirds and Piping Plovers in particular. For many years, she served as the Leader of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Piping Plover recovery team in the Great Lakes and Northern Great Plains. She also served as President of the American Ornithologists' Union. She has been awarded the Miller Medal by the Cooper Ornithological Society and a Distinguished Service Award from the U.S. Department of the Interior.
