Review:

This is a successful volume, and fills an important gap in the academic market, highlighting both the advances in our knowledge over the past 20 years and those areas which are in need of further study....This book is an attractive and most valuable contribution, not only to the ornithological literature, but also to anyone interested in evolutionary problems.
--TRENDS IN ECOLOGY AND EVOLUTION
An important book in that it fills a large gap in the avian literature.
