Most widely held works by Adam Watson
Animal populations in relation to their food resources: a symposium of the British Ecological Society, Aberdeen, 24-28 March 1969 by British Ecological Society( Book )

16 editions published between 1970 and 1979 in English and held by 542 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Committee considered early on that there were two possibilities for this Symposium. The result of the second approach, given in this volume, is therefore a mixture of preliminary progress reports on new or current lines of work, general reviews, and detailed reviews of long-term research projects. Papers were also invited from agriculturalists, nutritionists and behaviourists since each can contribute towards a better understanding of the role of food in influencing populations

Grouse : the natural history of British and Irish species by Adam Watson( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Grouse: The Natural History of British and Irish Species' covers four of the most emblematic species of our upland regions. Collectively they have the most fascinating life histories of any bird group, individually they have their own stories to tell: the ptarmigan is a resident of our highest mountain areas, the black grouse is famous for its extraordinary mating displays, the capercaillie is one of our largest birds and the red grouse, whilst no-longer one of the few British endemics, is one of the most heavily researched species. All four face similar problems, including habitat loss, predators, pests, disease and food shortage. This is compounded by issues of managed animal populations and controversy surrounding the commercial worth of grouse. This volume in the New Naturalist series, written by two of the world's leading grouse specialists, offers a fascinating insight into the natural history and biology of these birds, including aspects of their behaviour, the historical relevance of their names, the reasons behind population fluctuations and international conservation efforts."--BOOK JACKET
