About the Author:

Jim Duncan is an owl expert based in Canada. He is adjunct professor at the University of Winnipeg and Director of the Wildlife Branch of the Government of Manitoba.

He has banded more than 2,500 owls during the course of his research for more than two decades and has published numerous books and papers on the subject.

Review:

David Ramsden MBE, Head of Conservation, Barn owl Trust: James Duncan's new book is a photographic feast containing a truly wonderful collection of stunning owl portraits and action shots. Whilst Owls of the World makes no attempt to present all that is known, the calibre of its author and the wise words he delivers place it head and shoulders above many similar books that adorn 'coffee tables' around the world.This book, above all else, encourages people to care about owls. As Dr Jim Duncan, a scientist, rightly points out "people protect things they care about...science alone will not benefit owls if people do not value them". To this end, Owls of the World is an absolutely brilliant book. "It is a knowledgeable and scholarly overview of the owls, written in a style that makes it accessible to the non-specialist, and illustrated with a mass of images, many of quite outstanding quality...thoroughly recommended! David Parkin/British Birds Magazine Dec 2016"
