Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0195530691, Hardcover)This is the second volume of one of the most exciting projects in Australasian ornithology today. The Handbook of Australian, New Zealand and Antarctic Birds provides an up-to-date and comprehensive synthesis of our knowledge of all birds found in the region. These volumes will have an enormous impact on the direction of future research and the conservation of Australasian and Antarctic birds, as much by showing what we do not know as by summarizing what we do. Volume 2 focuses on 119 species. Each entry includes information on field identification, habitat, distribution and population, movements, food, social organization, social behavior, voice, breeding, and plumages. These accounts include illustrations of behavioral postures and plumage features, maps showing breeding and non-breeding distribution, sonograms of calls and songs, and diagrams of timing of breeding and moulting. This magnificent volume is a must for professional and amateur ornithologist alike.
