About this book

The Great Eagles presents an integrated perspective (palaeontological, historical, physiological, ecological, conservationist and human cultural) of eagles, including fish eagles, harpy eagles, snake eagles and booted eagles. Topics examined include 21st century issues in relation to older published themes; species classifications based on physical methods and DNA analyses; species comparisons involving evolution, definitions, classification, and ecology; and recent advances in adaptive management and other policy actions relevant to bird conservation.
