Birds of the Wetlands
This spectacular book is the work of one the world's most-travelled authorities on wetland birds. No one is better placed than James Hancock to provide a detailed understanding of the biology and ecology of the rich and varied assemblage of birds for whom the complex ecosystem of wetland habitats is home.
His skill as a photographer is used to beautiful effect throughout the book, while his appreciation and knowledge of the wetlands and their bird life, and his concern for conservation problems informs his lively text. Anecdote and science alike are used to plead a better understanding of the world's increasingly threatened wetland habitats, and the need to conserve them for the future.
"Thanks, James Hancock, for a fine journey."
- Florida Field Naturalist
"A fervent plea for the preservation of threatened environments."
