Review Text

  • By CW on November 24, 2008

    A book of exceptional value for anyone engaged in the field of ornithology. Likely to become a classic.

  • By Bode Downes on March 20, 2014

    Although this book is now 25 years old, it still rates as one of the best books I’ve ever read! The author’s knowledge of the literature on bird community ecology is unsurpassed, his critical evaluation of that information is brilliant, and the presentation of the material is crystal clear. Even ecologists who study other taxonomic groups will find something of value here. The book has no flaws. Note to birders: be advised that this is a highly technical book on avian ecology.
