Críticas:

... a multi-faceted book ... If you are interested in any aspect of incubation, I would recommend you read this book. ( Bird Study)

... a fine review of the fascinating topic of bird incubation . The volume is well produced with good, clear figures and tables ... I thoroughly enjoyed the book and will, I am sure, be referring to it frequently ... It is a worthy addition to the series and will make a fine addition to the collection of anyone with a serious interest in bird biology. ( Chris Brown, School of Animal, Plant & Environmental Sciences, University of the Witwatersrand - African Zoology)

... an up-to-date, exhaustively researched overview of how birds care for their eggs and maintain them at high temperatures. ( The Auk)

... a very comprehensive survey ... recommended. ( British Poultry Science)

... this book is a welcome addition to the ornithological literature, and simply the fact that it is the very first review of research in the field alone already makes it well worth buying. ( IBIS)

Reseña del editor:

This is the first scientific review of all factors affecting incubation in avian nests. These range from nest construction, egg characteristics and patterns of embryonic development. There is an extensive section describing incubation behaviour of parents and embryos, and there are chapters reviewing brood patch physiology and the various factors determining the incubation environment, including nest microbiology. Another section provides chapters giving detailed descriptions of examples of unusual aspects of avian incubation, whilst the final section provides consideration of the ecological, energetic and fitness cost of incubation. Written by authorities in their respective fields from around the world, this provides a comprehensive review of this critical aspect of avian reproduction. Much of the data included has not been previously published, and so Avian Incubation is not only an extensive reference text but is also a valuable contribution to our basic understanding of incubation.
