The grebes : Podicipedidae by Jon Fjeldså( Book )

6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Those who are unfamiliar with grebes tend to think of them as add ducks, but their strange behaviours reveal them to be intriguing birds. Grebes are unusual and unique in many ways, their habit of feather-eating; their method of sunbathing; their special method of underwater propulsion, the unusual structure of their feet, their courtship behaviour, and their floating ousts. As the birds are dependent upon shallow wetlands, they are strongly affected and threatened by out use of their habitats, leading to dwindling populations and even extinction of some species." "In this new addition to the Bird Families of the World series Jon Fjeldsa, a renowned expert, provides an overview of all the research that has been long on grebes."--Jacket

Peter Wilhelm Lund was one of the most important Danish naturalists of the 19th century. In 1832, he traveled to Brazil, then at the age of 31 years, and never returned to Denmark. In 10 years, he researched Brazilian limestone caves in the surroundings of Lagoa Santa, and its many findings and discoveries have led to completely new explanations for the emergence and evolution on Earth, flora, fauna and human beings. . He had an important contributor, the visionary Norwegian painter Peter Andreas Brandt. Brandt was indispensable to Lund in many ways, but the most notable were the incredibly beautiful and accurate illustrations he did for the pioneers of Lund. Presented in the book the sketchbook of Brandt, illustrating the work of Lund in the caves and contains the earliest representations of Lagoa Santa, in addition to a significant statement of their scientific designs.
