Forlagets egen informasjon
  • Bird Families of the World is a multivolume series of handbooks, intended to serve the interests of both the professional scientist and the ever-growing body of amateur ornithologists. Each volume provides a comprehensive and accurate synthesis of our knowledge of one bird family or several related families
  • 5 general chapters on the biology, feeding ecology, breeding behaviour, evolutionary relationships, and conservation of the birds in the family
  • 12 specially commissioned colour plates by John Busby, showing adults of all species and many juveniles, immatures and subspecies
  • 159 black-and-white drawings illustrating special features and behaviour
  • Descriptions of each individual species, including appearance, weights, and measurements; field characters; voice; habitat and food; breeding behaviour; life cycle; and range and status (with distribution map). This provides the most comprehensive and up-to-date species-level information available


The pelecaniformes are seabirds, found all over the world in marine and freshwater environments, encompassing six families and sixty species. They illuminate a variety of extremely important areas of seabird biology, especially ecology, behaviour and conservation. Bryan Nelson has researched these birds for forty years and his work is complemented by beautiful pictures, specially commissioned for the book from renowned ornithology illustrators.

Readership: Professional ornithologists and researchers with a specific interest in pelicans and cormorants. Avian ecologists with a general interest in sexual selection, mating behaviour, and nesting biology. A secondary market will exist amongst amateur ornithologists and naturalists.
