This volume reviews our current understanding of avian population dynamics and explores ways in which population studies can contribute to effective conservation and management. Estimation of demographic parameters, the role of mathematical modelling, and the special problems of island populations and seabird populations are discussed. The emphasis throughout is on how bird populations are regulated under various constraints and conditions, including the impact of environmental changes. This book will be useful and interesting to ornithologists, ecologists, wildlife managers, and population biologists.

`This fine book is a harvest of current research studies, now published in a series of 29 erudite papers. Each paper ends with a summary.'
`This is a serious book for the expert student of bird biology.' Ulster Newsletter, 19 August 1991
'the publication is well produced ... it makes a useful contribution towards the promotion of population studies as an integral part of bird conservation and management'
World Birdwatch (13 No.3, Sept 1991)
'This well-produced and well-edited book provides an admirable overview of the state of play in bird population studies. The many excellent, and often rigorously experimental, studies of local breeding numbers are well represented. The book ... sets a high scientific standard that will
interest professional and keen amateur ornithologists.'
J.D. Goss-Custard, IBIS, Vol. 134, 1992
'Bird Population Studies will become a major reference for avian population biologists. Its editors have assembled an outstanding collection of 30 chapters ... The chapters individually exhibit a uniformly high quality of presentation and together portray comprehensively the state of avian
Robert E. Ricklefs, University of Pennsylvania, TREE, vol. 7, no. 4, April 1992
'Bird population studies is a superb piece of work ... students embarking on research into bird populations and dynamics will find this book invaluable as a consequence of the hundreds of relevant references contained within.'
Graham J. Holloway, Dutch Birding, Volume 14, No. 1, 1992
'impressive volume ... a welcome attempt to synthesise the state of the art with regards to studies of avian demography and the application of such studies to management problems, particularly in relation to conservation ... the book is well structured and nicely produced with numerous
explanatory figures and tables. It should ideally, grace the shelves of all ornithologists concerned with conservation management ... certain to be widely consulted.'
Kate Thompson, Scottish Bird News, September 1992 No. 27
'The book is suitably illustrated with diagrams, and contains hardly any mathematical formulae. It is readable and will be a useful reference ... to any serious student of field ornithology.'
Jiro Kikkawa, Centre for Conservation Biology, The University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia
`Multi-author volume, whose subtitle ("relevance to conservation and management") is symptomatic of present needs. No single author could today satisfactorily digest and present such a diversity of studies by so many people in many different countries.'Journal of Ornithology
