Book Description David & Charles, 1981. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. Susan Tingay (illustrator). First Edition. Dust jacket complete, unclipped. Original cloth boards with bright gilt titling on spine. No ownership marks. B/w illustrations. 528 pages clean and tight. This volume contains details of 425 introduced species, each with a distribution map showing native and introduced range, and 215 line drawings. It brings together current scientific and historical information on birds which have been introduced, both successfully and unsuccessfully, throughout the world. As such, it is one of the few volumes available that deal with introduced bird species on a completely worldwide basis. Four hundred and twenty-five species of avifauna are covered, systematically arranged; it provides a concise summary of the description of each bird, its native range, where it was introduced, why it was successful or unsuccessful, and its habits - including status, habitat, gregariousness, movements, foods and breeding. The history of each introduction is traced in detail and notes are given on any damage caused to both native and introduced habitats. Tables give additional summaries of each species, including dates, countries and reasons for introduction where known. An introduction to the work outlines the history of introductions of birds and the associate hazards and benefits. There follows family notes on the whole group before the species descriptions. Additionally, for each description, key works or recent papers are given within the text, while an extensive bibliography provides expanded reference points. The result is a major scholarly work on an important and generally-overlooked area of world ornithology. It is an invaluable reference work for the bookshelves of international libraries, whether in institutions, schools or at home. Size: 4to. Bookseller Inventory # 141550
