About this book

Waterbirds are one the world's most attractive group of birds and among the most threatened. These include albatrosses, flamingos, swans, geese, ducks, cranes, waders, gulls, terns and auks. They share a dependency on the world's wetlands-seas, coasts, estuaries, lagoons, lochs, rivers, marshlands, swamps, tundra and other peatlands, and they have come to symbolize the changing, fragile nature of planet earth.

More than 450 conservation scientists from 90 countries attended the Waterbirds around the World conference, held in Edinburgh in 2004. The ensuing proceedings and introductory papers describe the truly global efforts being made to halt the decline in waterbirds populations.

This groundbreaking book provides a wealth of new information on the use of global flyways by waterbirds and discusses concerns such as climate change, infectious diseases ecosystem approaches. With more than 240 papers straddling geographical, topical and cross-cutting themes, this is a timely overview of many global partnerships between governments, agencies and other bodies tackling waterbird research, conservation and management.

Media reviews
In many ways the albatross may be the ultimate test of whether or not, as a species ourselves, we are serious about conservation, capable of co-existing on this planet with other species...it would be a shameful travesty of our duty as stewards of this increasingly fragile globe if we couldn't find a way of living our lives in such a manner that these magnificent birds can continue to share the same planet with us From the conference address by HRH The Prince of Wales."
