About this book

Vultures: Their Evolution, Ecology and Conservation examines current knowledge on the evolution, ecology, and conservation biology of both New World vultures (Cathartidae) and Old World vultures (Accipitridae). Extinct species of both families are examined, as well as the disputed evidence for familial similarities and differences currently under review by geneticists and ornithologists. Vultures: Their Evolution, Ecology and Conservation also discusses conservation issues related to recent land cover change (deforestation, urbanization, and desertification), wildlife depletions, and pollution, which affect scavenging vultures.

Contents

- The current situation of vultures
- The biology of vulture evolution and past species
- The New World vultures
- The Old World vultures
- The ecological niche of vultures compared with scavengers and raptors

- Conservation strategies for vultures; possibilities and alternatives
