    Human populations are increasing and becoming predominantly urban. Resulting land cover changes reduce, perforate, isolate, and degrade bird habitat on local and global scales. I review: 1) Cited by: Avian Urban Ecology is suitable for professional avian biologists and ornithologists as well as graduate students of avian ecology, evolution, and conservation. It will also be of relevance and use to a more general audience of urban ecologists and conservation : OUP Oxford.

Avian Urban Ecology Edited by Diego Gil and Henrik Brumm A vibrant and exciting discipline, with practical implications for conservation Uses the concept of adaptation throughout the book to integrate the chapters and set it aside from other books in the area, which tend to describe challenges without discussing the implications.

Among the best-studied wildlife groups, birds have been widely used as bioindicators in urban areas. Going from general to specific information regarding avian communities, populations, behavior, threats, and conservation issues, this book describes Author: Ian Macgregor-Fors.

The aim of this book is to outline the main methods and techniques available to ornithologists. A general shortage of information about available techniques is greatly hindering progress in avian ecology and conservation.

Currently this sort of information is disparate and difficult to locate with much of it widely dispersed in books, journals and grey literature. The book edited by Michel Robert, Marie-Hélène Hachey, Denis Lepage, and Andrew R. Couturier totals pages, photos, maps, graphs, and 39 other tables or figures.

The first reaction when looking at this atlas is how attractive the book is. Its graphic design and refined layout motivate any readers to go through the : Jean-François Giroux.

"This is an extraordinary book on ecology and evolutionary biology of a special set of birds. Any biologist whose research deals even remotely with introduced species will find much of value. The coverage of life history, range expansion, and changes in niche will appeal to ecologists.5/5(1).

Studies in Avian Biology is a series of works started and published by the Cooper Ornithological Society in and now published in collaboration and on behalf of the American Ornithological Society.

Volumes in the series address current topics in ornithology and can be organized as monographs or multi-authored collections of chapters. Selected by as one of the 12 best books about birds and birding in This much-anticipated third edition of the Handbook of Bird Biology is an essential and comprehensive resource for everyone interested in learning more about birds, from casual bird watchers to formal students of ornithology.

Latin America is one of the most biodiverse regions of the world, yet it is still understudied. Avian Ecology Inthere was a classic study of an avian community done by Robert MacArthur of warblers in a white spruce forest of the coast of Maine. He discovered that warblers of different species used different areas of a pine tree to feed in.

One original paper can be seen here. Avian Molecular Evolution and Systematics presents an overview of the theory and application of molecular systematics, focusing on the phylogeny and evolutionary biology of birds.

New, developing areas in the phylogeny of birds at multiple taxonomic areas are covered, as well as methods of analysis for molecular data, evolutionary genetics.

Avian Influenza provides the first comprehensive guide covering the full spectrum of this complex and increasingly high-profile disease, its history and its treatment and control.

All aspects of avian influenza are dealt with in depth, systematically covering biology, virology, diagnostics, ecology, epidemiology, clinical medicine, and the control. Yet in the seminal book on avian ecology in urban environments (Marzluff et al. ), there is also some remark on the role of bird introductions.
