Essential Ornithology provides the reader with a concise but comprehensive introduction to the biology of birds, one of the most widely studied taxonomic groups. The book starts with the controversial question of the dinosaur origins of birds and their subsequent evolution. Development, anatomy, and physiology are then discussed followed by chapters devoted to avian reproduction, migration, ecology, and conservation. Sections dealing with aspects of bird/human relationships and bird conservation give the book an applied context.

Drawing extensively upon the wider scientific literature, this engaging text places the results of classical studies of avian biology alongside the most recent scientific breakthroughs. Useful case studies are presented in a concise and engaging style with the student reader foremost in mind. Key points are highlighted and suggestions for guided reading and key references are included throughout.

About the Author:


Dr. Graham Scott is currently a lecturer in the Department of Biological Sciences at the university of Hull. He teaches ornithology, ecology and animal behaviour at undergraduate level and has a range of research interests. He is committed to the development of teaching at university level. With a life-long passion for birding he is fascinated by all aspects of ornithology.

Review:


"An excellent digest of its subject, combining as it does the long back catalog of ornithological research with a pleasing range of recent developments. The work is admirable, and will no doubt achieve its aim of becoming a valuable text for degree-level students and researchers."--BBC Wildlife


"Very readable, is up to date, and usefully includes 'key references' and 'concepts' as notes in the margin."--British Bird


Listed in Birdbooker Report


"In just 155 pages of text, Graham Scott provides a very useful overview of modern ornithology...The writing is very accessible, so the book is perfect for the serious amateur ornithologist (i.e., birder) and ideal to hand to your graduate students as they prepare for their orals." -- Richard O. Bierregaard, Biology, University of North Carolina, Charlotte, North Carolina, THE QUARTERLY REVIEW OF BIOLOGY
