If you're half as crazy about parrots as our CEO Simon Espley, you simply must add this book to your collection... Dr Mike Perrin of the University of KwaZulu-Natal, and Director of the Research Centre for African Parrot Conservation has produced a comprehensive work on the PARROTS OF AFRICA, MADAGASCAR AND THE MASCARENE ISLANDS. It is aimed at ornithologists, conservation biologists, avian ecologists, academics, erudite bird watchers and the informed public. It is extremely well-illustrated, with very high quality original photographs, although it is not a coffee table book. It includes distribution maps, some figures and a few tables. It provides complete coverage of our current knowledge of all aspects of the biology of extant African, Malagasy and Mascarene parrots, and to reviews our knowledge of extinct and fossil parrots from the region. The idea was conceived following a wide range of original research projects on southern African parrots supervised by the author. Particular themes developed in the book include the behavioural and ecological characteristics of parrots, their species characteristics and conservation biology. Several current concepts in avian and conservation biology are also discussed. Estimated price: R600 ISBN: 978-1-86814-552-2 For ordering information please go to http://witspress.co.za/ .
