Biology of Marine Birds provides the only complete summary of information about marine birds ever published. It both summarizes and analyzes their breeding biology, ecology, taxonomy, evolution, fossil history, physiology, energetics, and conservation. The book covers four orders of marine birds: penguins (Sphenisciformes); albatross, shearwaters, petrels (Procellariiformes); pelicans, boobies, frigatebirds, tropicbirds, cormorants (Pelecaniformes); and gulls, terns, guillemots, auks (Charadriiformes - Families Laridae and Alcidae). Two summary chapters address the biology of shorebirds and wading birds and their lives in the marine environment.

This comprehensive book contains numerous summary tables that give you exhaustive information on various aspects of their life histories, breeding biology, physiology and energetics, and demography. It also discusses research techniques and future research needed, providing a guide to ornithologists and students for research projects.

Written by acknowledged experts in this field, Biology of Marine Birds is the ideal resource. The authors not only present known information, but provide new analyses and insights into marine bird biology. You will find no other book that covers all the major seabird groups and all the major topics with this depth of detail. Whether you are studying, researching, or managing marine environments, you will find yourself reaching for this resource repeatedly.

Review:

"[A]n impressive array of chapters written by world-renowned seabird ecologists and physiologists. [A] well-written and relatively comprehensive review ." - The Condor ..."the book is very comparative in the subjects that it covers. Readers will be able to compare feeding behaviors, breeding biology, chick development, and many other subjects... The editors are to be commended for making a multiple author text work together so well. The writing is very readable and straightforward." -Library News for Zoos and Aquariums, September 2001 "The publishers make the rather strong claim that this book provides the only complete summary of information ever published about these specialized birds. Surprisingly, this statement appears correct. Major advances have been made in the study of marine birds in the last two or three decades. This book represents a timely and tremendously useful introduction to recent results, within a general context of evolution, ecology, physiology and conservation. The essential character of this book is that it contains a wealth of information, nicely presented with good tables and graphs, and illustrated by numerous sketches by John Busby and others. Generally, the text is of very high quality. this book is undoubtedly a considerable achievement. It seems to be aimed essentially at research biologists, though it will of interest to plenty of other people. It is a book for dipping into at intervals, with relish, rather than for reading cover to cover. And there is a great deal to dip into." -David Max, in Ibis, Vol. 144, 2002
