Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: This study describes the science of bird migration. Not merely describing the incredible stamina and navigation skills of birds in their seasonal movements, Peter Berthold also discusses recent ideas, hypotheses, experimental results and methods in this field. There are 12 chapters, including information on types of migration, migratory behaviour, physiological adaptations, orientation mechanisms and navigation, and conservation needs of migrants. For birdwatchers and naturalists, as well as professional ornithologists, this book should give an appreciation and understanding of migrating birds. Peter Berthold is the editor of "Orientation in birds".
