The survival world of birds by John Gooders( Book )

5 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and German and held by 401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why are hummingbirds found only in the Americas while the Osprey inhabits virtually every continent? Why does the Arctic Tern migrate enormous distances yet the Red Grouse rarely strays more than a mile from its birthplace? Why do the northern auks and southern penguins look so alike? Why have some birds, and not others, radiated into different species and subspecies? Numbering nearly 9,000 species worldwide, birds exhibit an astonishing diversity. Through John Gooders' lucid examination of the similarities and differences between the birds of each continent, this volume explores the many puzzles of bird behavior and distribution. Fascinating insights are provided into bird behavior - such as the larders of food stored by Eleonora's Falcon, the elaborate courting ritual of Australasia's bowerbirds - and, looking ahead, the final chapter takes a realistic view on the future of birds and their survival alongside humans
