About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and Spanish

First monograph in a new series. The Galapagos Hawk / El Gavilán de Galápagos describes the biology and ecology of the Galapagos Hawk, Buteo galapagoensis. After an introduction to the geography of the Galapagos Islands, habitat preferences, reproductive biology and social life are described. Two short chapters describe the tameness of this species compared to other birds of prey, and the interactions between it and two owl species with which it shares its range. Further chapters on origin, morphology, taxonomy and populations dynamics round out the book.
