Birds and BerriesHardback £50.00 Buy Now
The book's subtitle - A study of an ecological interaction - properly reflects the author's theme but may tend to hide the fact that the relationships between birds and berries can be much more than the simple, mutually advantageous systems ('eat my fruits, spread my seeds') they may seem at first to be. Therein lies the core of the book - the less obvious intricacies and implications of plant/ bird associations, the coevolution of species in some cases and the adaptations of a species (bird or plant) to further its own advantage. This thought-provoking text offers many insights not generally perceived by ornithologist or botanist and is illustrated in masterly fashion by John Busby's lively drawings.
