This well-produced and well-edited book provides an admirable overview of the state of play in bird population studies. The many excellent, and often rigorously experimental, studies of local breeding numbers are well represented.

Bird Population Studies We study disease, environmental changes, and the complex web of factors that determine where birds are found and how abundant they can. Bird Population Studies: Relevance to Conservation and Management (Oxford Ornithology Series) by Christopher M.

Perrins, J.D. Lebreton, C.M. Perrins and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at This volume reviews our current understanding of avian population dynamics and explores ways in which population studies can contribute to effective conservation and management.

Estimation of demographic parameters, the role of mathematical modelling, and the special problems of island populations and seabird populations are discussed.

Dr Newton's book is concerned with all aspects of population regulation in diurnal birds of prey, their social behaviour, dispersion, numbers, movements, breeding and mortality. He has drawn on his own studies in Scotland and on material and investigations worldwide to produce an authoritative and stimulating synthesis of current thinking and research on the ecological problems of the.
