It discusses topics such as acoustics, reproductive cues, disease, and artificial feeding, and includes a series of case studies illustrating cutting edge research on these areas. Avian Urban Ecology is suitable for professional avian biologists and ornithologists as well as graduate students of avian ecology, evolution, and conservation. It will also be of relevance and use to a more general audience of urban ecologists and conservation biologists. His main interests are the study of bird song and the transmission of hormones in avian eggs.
That issue is explored by comparing the ecology of individuals of a species living in both urban and natural places. This book describes many detailed studies of urban bird ecology and physiology in European and American contexts. The insights gained should help to make predictions for proposed developments and assist planning decisions in ways that benefit both birds and people. This is an interesting book, with a large potential readership among bird watchers and professional biologists, but perhaps it's rather expensive for casual purchase.
