    About this book. Until recently, surprisingly little has been known about the biology and behavior of tropical forest raptors, including such basic aspects as diets, breeding biology, habitat requirements, and population ecology, information critical to the development of conservation efforts. Making available for the first time new data on the biology, ecology, behavior, 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. Contents: 1. The Maya Project 2. The Maya Forest 3.

      Raptor researchers Clint W. Boal and Cheryl Dykstra are co-authors of Urban Raptors: Ecology and Conservation of Birds of Prey in Cities, a new book that explores the science of how these birds of prey have adapted to city life and what humans can do to support them. This book is dedicated to forest ecology and conservation on ecological and conservation aspects of forest. The book is divided into two sections: the first section "Forest Ecology" with four chapters deals with forest ecological aspects, while the second section "Forest Conservation" with two chapters looks into new techniques for conserving the forests. This book will bridge the gaps in the Author: Sumit Chakravarty, Gopal Shukla.

Background information is provided on the status and ecology of raptors (birds of prey) in Britain and the legislation that gives them full protection.

Based on this information, management techniques are proposed that will improve man-made conifer forests in the uplands for this spectacular group of birds, and the food webs upon which they are dependent. Get this from a library.

Ecology and conservation of raptors in forests. [S J Petty; Great Britain. Forestry Commission.] -- Background information is provided on the status and ecology of raptors (birds of prey) in Britain and the legislation that gives them full protection.

This book, prepared by a leading group of European specialists in birds of prey, has been designed to review the current research in European forest-dwelling raptors. It deals with the methodologies used to assess the status of owls and raptors, their demographic trends, some relevant aspects of their biology and the potential impact on their.

Until recently, surprisingly little has been known about the biology and behavior of tropical forest raptors, including such basic aspects as diets, breeding biology, habitat requirements, and population ecology, information critical to the development of conservation efforts/5(4).

Migrating Raptors of the World also includes the ecological and conservation stories of several intriguing raptor migrants, including the Turkey Vulture, Osprey, Bald Eagle, Western Honey Buzzard, Northern Harrier, Grey-faced Buzzard, Steppe Buzzard, and Amur by: Ecology and conservation of raptors in forests.

There are four sections: community ecology, life history patterns, comparative breeding biology, and spatial use and conservation needs of Neotropical lowland forest raptors. Discover the world's. A cutting-edge synthesis of over two decades of scientific research, Urban Raptors is the first book to offer a complete overview of urban ecosystems in the context of bird-of-prey ecology and conservation.

This comprehensive volume examines urban environments, explains why some species adapt to urban areas but others do not, and introduces.

Seasonally Dry Tropical Forests brings together a range of experts in diverse fields including biology, ecology, biogeography, and biogeochemistry, to review, synthesize, and explain the current state of our collective knowledge on the ecology and conservation of this endangered ecosystem.

The book. The book is divided into two sections: the first section "Forest Ecology" with four chapters deals with forest ecological aspects, while the second section "Forest Conservation" with two chapters looks into new techniques for conserving the forests.

This book will bridge the gaps in the knowledge about some new emerging issues on forest ecology. He has published more than scientific papers on birds, and several books, including Finches (), Population Ecology of Raptors (), The Sparrowhawk (), and Lifetime Reproduction in Birds (edited, ).

A new book called “Ecology and conservation of European forest-dwelling raptors” is now available. It coves a wide range of European raptor species who depend on forests.

The book is available in English and to my information also in Spanish and Basque. The table of contents can be found here:   Based on 15 years of research and conservation work by researchers with Birdlife Hungary, this monograph lays out the basic biology of the Red-Footed Falcon, Falco vespertinus.5/5(2).

Conservation threats and priorities for raptors across Asia With long coastlines and some of the world’s most important rivers, mountain ranges, high-altitude plateaus, and islands, Asia is the largest and most populous continent in the world (Lyde ; Spencer ; Population Reference Bureau ).

The book has two parts. The first part is worth the price alone. It is one of the best introductions into raptor ecology and conservation available and definitely the best in German. In over pages the authors describe in detail and in an easy to read language how raptors live and how to protect them.To protect typical forest communities with many forest specialists of high conservation concern, we recommend reducing the extent of post-disturbance salvaging in forests of high conservation.In the book Urban Raptors: Ecology and Conservation of Birds of Prey in Cities, general ecological ideas are presented about raptors in urban environs, followed with examples from specific species, and concluded with management techniques to resolve common conflicts.
