These include albatrosses, flamingos, swans, geese, ducks, cranes, waders, gulls, terns and auks. They share a dependency on the world's wetlands, seas, coasts, estuaries, lagoons, lochs, rivers, marshlands, swamps, tundra and other peatlands, and they have come to symbolise the changing, fragile nature of planet earth. More than 450 conservation scientists from 90 countries attended the Waterbirds around the world conference, held in Edinburgh in 2004. The ensuing proceedings and introductory papers describe the truly global efforts being made to halt the decline in waterbird populations. This groundbreaking book provides a wealth of new information on the use of global flyways by waterbirds, and discusses concerns such as climate change, infectious diseases and the need for ecosystem approaches. With more than 240 papers straddling geographical, topical and cross-cutting themes, this is a timely overview of many global partnerships between governments, agencies and other bodies tackling waterbird research, conservation and management. The international editorial and conference team has assembled a remarkable range of papers, illustrated by hundreds of figures, maps and photos. This is an indispensable resource to the birding world. | [E] | |
