The most comprehensive guide to African raptors ever published. Africa has the most diverse range of raptors of any continent, with almost a third of the world's species occurring in the region. This comprehensive new book treats all of these species in impressive detail, with emphasis on their field identification. A full range of plumages is illustrated for each species, with artwork by raptor specialist Rob Davies. The authoritative text treats the identification of both perched and in-flight birds, and covers all major races, ages, plumages and morphs. These texts are accompanied by up-to-date distribution maps and a range of fabulous colour photographs from some of the world's leading bird photographers, again covering as broad a range of ages and subspecies as possible. This new Helm Identification Guide will be an essential reference for all birders and ornithologists with an interest in raptors.

Dr Newton's book is concerned with all aspects of population regulation in diurnal birds of prey, their social behaviour, dispersion, numbers, movements, breeding and mortality. He has drawn on his own studies in Scotland and on material and investigations worldwide to produce an authoritative and stimulating synthesis of current thinking and research on the ecological problems of the Falconiformes. He also deals in detail with the effects of pesticides and other pollutants on these birds, and with their scientific management and conservation. The author's lucid style will ensure a wide readership among research workers and the more general audience with an interest in birds of prey. There is a full bibliography and an extensive appendix of tables.

This is the much antici-pated and thoroughly updated version of the popular but long out of print "Raptor Management Techniques Manual". Produced by the Raptor Research Foundation, this is a compre-hensive work designed for use by raptor researchers and conserva-tionists and natural-resource managers around the world. Each chapter has been authored by experts in the field and has undergone rigorous review. Not an all-inclusive manual or detailed "how-to" book, this new work reflects the state of the art in raptor research, with up-to-date information on various techniques, and numerous references to additional sources for details and cautions regarding various field and laboratory techniques and management tools. Beginning with a general review of the field of raptor research, it includes insights into field-study techniques, information on the energetics, physiology, pathology, and toxicology of raptors; it cov-ers reduction of management and researcher disturbance, mitiga-tion, population monitoring at migration watchsites, captive breed-ing, the augmentation of wild populations, and rehabilitation, and concludes with chapters on public education and legal considerations. This book will enhance standardisation in the field, speed improvement in techniques and help those who study and manage birds to better protect them.
