Reviews

  • "This original and valuable book will help to broaden the understanding of avian ecology throughout the world."
    ?-D. Flaspohler, Michigan Technical University, in CHOICE (January 2002)


    "This is a stimulating book and a rich source of research ideas written at a level suitable for undergraduates..."
    ?-Jeremy Lindsell in IBIS (2001)
    "...an articulate basic review of what currently is shaping the field of avian behavioral ecology in the tropics. ...The authors are to be commended for bringing together an information base that I hope will inspire ornithologists to add to its future expansion."
    ?John Kricher for THE WILSON BULLETIN (September 2001)
    "The principal strength of this book is the authors' breadth of experience, which provides credibility to their claims. ...I recommend Behavioral Ecology of Tropical Birds to budding behavioral ecologists who are on the prowl for research topics that may alter the directions of the field, and to ecologists in the temperate zone who wonder why their colleagues go to the bother and expense of mounting behavioral research projects in the tropics."
    ?-Tom A. Langen, Clarkson University, in ECOLOGY (November 2001)
    "...an articulate basic review of what currently is shaping the field of avia behavioral ecology in the tropics. ...The authos are to be commended for bringing together an information base that I hope will inspire ornithologists to add to its future expansion."
    ?John Kricher for THE WILSON BULLETIN (September 2001)
