The book is timely for other reasons, too. Knowledge about the status and distribution of birds in Ireland has increased greatly since the 1960s and this is reflected in the detailed species accounts which form the major part of the book. Factors which led to this greater knowledge, recent changes in bird distribution and status, and reasons for the absence of some species are topics discussed in the book's introductory chapters.

  • Avian Survivors: The History and Biogeography of Palearctic Birds
    Avian Survivors: The History and… by Clive Finlayson

    The impacts of global warming are of concern to all of us. The potential responses of birds to climate change have come increasingly to the fore, and are of particular interest to the ornithological community. Are birds sensitive to climate change and how will they react to a world of global warming?

    These are the key issues to be explored in this book, with particular reference to Western Palearctic birds. Climate changes that have affected the region in the last twenty million years will be explored, drawing on published data on fossil birds. A major part of the book will be devoted to the distribution of Western Palearctic birds in relation to bio-climate. The final section of the book looks at migration and the relationship of the Western Palearctic to Africa.

  • Gulls: A Guide to Identification
    Gulls: A Guide to Identification by P J Grant

    Until recently gulls were widely regarded as a difficult group and identification and ageing was often inaccurate or uncertain. This was largely due to the complexities of immature plumages, which of necessity were generally unrepresented in standard field guides. Birdwatchers need no longer be deterred or confounded by that deficiency. This revised second edition book offers them the opportunity to advance their skill in field identification by accepting the challenge rather than shrinking from the difficulties.

  • The Sparrows
    The Sparrows by Denis Summers-Smith

    Denis Summers-Smith first took up the study of the House Sparrow in 1947, thinking that the difficulties of travel in post-war Britain would best suit the study of a species always close at hand. The humble House Sparrow, common everywhere, was surprisingly poorly researched and his work soon provided interesting insights into this successful and adaptable little bird. As new opportunities to travel opened up, his interest blossomed to take in the genus Passer as a whole. The author's own photographs and delightful cartoons by Euan Dunn further paint the picture of this lifelong search.

  • Birds and Berries
    Birds and Berries by Barbara and David Snow

    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.
