Neotropical birds : ecology and conservation

Author: Douglas F Stotz; Conservation International.; Field Museum of Natural History.
Publisher: Chicago : University of Chicago Press, ©1996.
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Bird communities are sensitive indicators of habitat type and condition. Therefore careful ornithological surveys can provide quick, practical assessments of the ecological characteristics and conservation status of many terrestrial communities in the tropical Americas. This volume provides the data essential to the success of such surveys. It compiles, for the first time, information on the ecological and
