Description

For centuries, humans have admired birds for their spectacular plumage, beautiful song and dazzling behavioural displays, as well as envying their power of flight. This ability has enabled them to colonise most of the world, from tropical rainforests to arid desert regions and the frigid wastes of Antarctica. This book is a comprehensive guide to the fascinating world of birds. It traces the evolution of birds, explains avian biology and behaviour and gives information on the conservation status of various species. It also describes the remarkable ways in which birds have adapted to sometimes inhospitable habitats. This stunning book is packed with breathtaking images of every aspect of bird life and clear authoritative text. From their habitats, biology and behaviour to bird history and adaptation, this book will take you right into the wonder of bird life.
