The Encyclopedia of Birds is the definitive single-volume guide to the birds of the world. Written by a team of renowned biologists and conservationists, it offers accessible coverage of every family - their form and function, distribution, diet, social behaviour, and breeding biology - giving special attention to environmental and conservation issues. The Encyclopedia's clear, readable text is supplemented by a wealth of photographs showing the wide diversity of birds in their natural habitat, as well as beautifully detailed illustrations depicting representative species in each family. In addition 'Factfile' panels throughout the book, with distribution maps and scale drawings, put key data at the reader's fingertips, ensuring that this comprehensive reference work will appeal to amateur birdwatchers and student and professional ornithologists alike.
