Neotropical Birds of Prey: Biology and Ecology of a Forest Raptor Community
Covers twenty specific spies in depth, offering thorough synopses of all current knowledge regarding breeding biology and behaviour, diet, habitat use, and spatial needs. Also shows how the populations fit together as a community with overlapping habitat and prey needs that can put them in competition with reptiles and mammalian carnivores as well, yet differ from one another in their nesting or feeding behaviours and population dynamics.
This titles substantive original data offer interesting comparisons between tropical and temperate zone species, and provide a basis for establishing conservation measures based on firsthand research. Making available for the first time new data on the biology, ecology, behaviour, and conservation of the majestic owls and raptors of the New World tropics, this book will appeal to a wide ornithological readership, especially the many raptor enthusiasts around the world.
