"...a valuable reference for ornithologists, for those interested in specific biotic effects of climate change, and for those looking for a portal to data sets amenable to building predictive climate-effect models." - Jason Jones, Vassar College, for ECOLOGY "One of the strengths of this book is the breadth of topics covered in a relatively short volume...Chapters on timing of migration and the energetics of migration are at their strongest when discussing the specifics of avian ecology...The editors provide a broad range of questions that will interest academic avian biologists...Birds and Climate Change is at its best in helping scientists take advantage of a 'unique opportunity to study the adaptation of organisms to their changing environments'. Those seeking to understand and perhaps limit the impacts of human-caused environmental change on birds and other organisms can certainly benefit from the insight presented here." -John P. McCarty, Department of Biology, University of Nebraska in THE CONDOR
