About this Item

Tight Binding, No markings nice copy. In protective cover. "This book describes a contemporary ecological disaster and the search to explain it. Its extensive analysis offers, on the one hand, an unusual landmark in population biology and, on the other, perhaps the requiem of aspecies.By the early 1960's, however, peregrine populations were catastrophically declining on two continents. Other raptors were mysteriously and rapidly decreasing too. " ; 9.60 X 6.80 X 1.90 inches; 580 pp pages. Bookseller Inventory # 6137

About this title


Pp. xxii, 596; 60 black-and-white photographic plates of the peregrine falcon, its nesting sites and habitat on four continents, numerous text-figures and maps. Publisher's original yellow cloth, lettered in brown on the spine, color pictorial dust jacket, lg 8vo. In forty chapters, by noted authorities in the field, this work describes the sudden decline of the peregrine falcon. The volume examines a wide variety of adverse factors - diseases, parasites, and human harassment - and reaches the conclusion that the concentration of chlorinated hydrocarbons by bird- and fish-eating raptors is the only hypothesis that can adequately explain the simultaneous population failures on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. No ownership marks.
