Bird Gardens

Bird Gardens
de Brooklyn Botantical Gardens, Brooklyn Botanic Garden(Ed. Brooklyn Botanic Garden) Isbn : 1889538086
9.46 €
This nice little guide is a good introduction to both the science and the art of designing a garden that will attract birds. Kress, who has authored one other book on bird gardens, and the other contributors are all regional experts with the National Audubon Society. One of the early, and major, points that the book makes is that loss of habitat is having a tremendous negative effect on bird populations, and that by providing what they need for food, shelter, and nesting, the homeowner can help preserve many species. A chapter on the intertwined biology of birds and plants sets the stage for chapters on the six primary biogeographic regions of the U.S. Lists of suggested plants for each region are accompanied by descriptions of their use to birds, along with planting information. Lists of ...

A Guide to the Identification and Natural History of the Sparrows of the United States and Canada

A Guide to the Identification and Natural History of the Sparrows of the United States and Canada
de James D. Rising(Ed. Poyser) Isbn : 0125889704
35.44 €
This new title provides comprehensive and up-to-date information on all the features that make possible the identification of all 62 species of New World sparrows that occur in North America, north of Mexico, including vagrant Asiatic buntings and Latin American grassquits. The text gives detailed descriptions of the summer, winter and juvenile plumages of each species, as well as comparisons of similar species with which confusion may be possible. The 27 colour plates splendidly illustrate the various plumages of each species with the emphasis on the distinctive appearance of birds of different sex, age and geographical regions.

Asymptotic Giant Branch Stars

Asymptotic Giant Branch Stars
de H. J. Habing, H. Olofsson(Ed. Springer-Verlag New York Inc.) Isbn : 0387008802
160.56 €
This new collection deals with the underlying astrophysical mechanisms of phenomena known as asymptotic giant branch stars, the structures that emerge during the dramatic period prior to a star's death. Over the past three decades, asymptotic giant branch stars have become a topic of their own, and the contributions to this volume all focus on these unique entities themselves (rather than their connections to other areas of astronomy). The discussion ranges from the theoretical to more practical issues, such as new methods of high-quality infrared observation and the more detailed and realistic simulations made possible by increasingly fast computers. Asymptotic Giant Branch Stars will be useful to graduate students who work in the field, teachers who want to address the subject in their c...

This new atlas of breeding birds is the significantly improved follow-up to the bestselling previous volume published in 1976. Most species accounts include three maps, one showing the current breeding distribution, one in full-colour showing relative abundance of the species throughout its range and one highlighting changes in distribution between the current and original surveys. The text, tables and vignette complete each double page spread. A detailed introduction outlines the methods used in the survey work and explains the various analyses of the data gathered. Appendices give details of rare breeders and a wealth of extra, tabular material. This new atlas is an indispensable reference for every ornithologist with an interest in the birds of Britain and Ireland. "The most important w...

This new and authoritative reference work takes into account the great advances made in ornithology since the publication of the Handbook of British Birds (1938-41), which for many years provided the basis on which ornithological research was built.

The eight volumes together contain descriptions of over 760 species of birds, of which about 600 are breeding species. Each...
