Forlagets egen omtale:
Newton’s book is concerned with all aspects of population regulation in
diurnal birds of prey, their social behaviour, dispersion, numbers, movements,
breeding and mortality. He has drawn on his own studies in Scotland and on
material and investigations worldwide to produce an authoritative and
stimulating synthesis of current thinking and research on the ecological
problems of the Falconiformes.
He also deals in detail with the effects of pesticides and other pollutants on
these birds, and with their scientific management and conservation.
The author’s lucid style will ensure a wide readership among research workers
and the more general audience with an interest in birds of prey. There is a full
bibliography and an extensive appendix of tables.
