9780195084528: Ecology and Management of Neotropical Migratory Birds: A Synthesis and Review of Critical Issues

The apparent decline in numbers among many species of migratory songbirds is a timely subject in conservation biology, particularly for ornithologists, ecologists, and wildlife managers. This book is an attempt to discuss the problem in full scope. It presents an ambitious, comprehensive assessment of the current status of neotropical migratory birds in the U.S., and the methods and strategies used to conserve migrant populations. Each chapter is an essay reviewing and assessing the trend from a different viewpoint, all written by leaders in the fields of ornithology, conservation, and population biology.

Review:


"Ecology and Management of Neotropical Migratory Birds provides the best review yet of the scientific issues surrounding migrants."--Science


"The 17 chapters of this book provide a detailed examination of ecology and management of neotropical migratory birds. . .Ornithologists and conservation biologists will be interested in this book. Recommended." --Wildlife Activist


"This volume seeks to summarize an aspect of our knowledge of birds that largely breed in temperate North America and migrate into Latin America. . . .The editors and most of the authors did an excellent job, serving well those in conservation biology. . . .I do enthusiastically recommend this volume to anyone interested in the ecology and management of landbirds. . .A good source of current knowledge of trends of landbird populations and some potential causes of these changes. . .A good foundation for further work."--Ecology


"Overall, this book is very satisfying, with much information presented in a very readable and assessable manner."--The Prairie Naturalist


"Martin and Finch have succeeded in their aims. This is a welcome addition to my bookshelf. It will be useful to university instructors, to environmental activists, to policy analysts, as well as to researchers and the land management community for which it is intended. The multiple author approach has provided the seasoning of ideas that the editors desired. The scholarship is high-quality throughout. . . . Buy the book and use it. Appreciate the extreme difficulty faced quite forthrightly and courageously by the land managers in the trenches. They must act, for lack of manipulation is a management action as much as is extensive manipulation. This volume is a lantern they can use to illuminate some of the poorly marked guideposts for their decision-making."--The Condor


"With its primary focus on the owrldwide decline in number among migratory songbird species, this book provides a comprehensive review of what we know about species in the United States and how we are addressing their decline from a management standpoint. . .An exceptional review of the literature on this timely topic."--Northern Naturalist
