Críticas:

Packed with photos, illustrations, and lively text that comfortably bridges the gap between a child's reference tool and a doctoral thesis. -- Scott Kirkwood, National Parks Magazine Complete, beautiful, accessible, and a bargain to boot--The Princeton Encyclopedia of Birds is everything one might want in a reference book... It makes a point of distilling current field re-search into accessible articles written in an engaging style. -- Teresa Scollon, Foreword Magazine Written in a clear and entertaining manner. It is a good browse on the diversity of birds... The photographs are well worth the cost of the book. I recommend it to anyone with an interest in birds. -- Robert B. Payne, Wilson Journal of Ornithology Essential for the library of any birder... Since its scope is international, this book will be particularly valuable to the birder who travels to foreign corners of the world. The Princeton Encyclopedia of Birds is full of excellent color photography and illustrations and, the entry for each bird is complete with brief writings that distinguish the habits of that particular bird... The Princeton Encyclopedia of Birds is well-worthy of its noble Princeton name and is an essential reference for the birder, and especially one who travels the globe in hopes of sighting new birds. -- Chris Smith, Englewood Review of Books The text is informative, the best aspect of this book is the abundance of illustrations. Unlike many bird references, it combines both photographs and paintings to take full advantage of each medium. -- DC Birding Blog

Reseña del editor:

"The Princeton Encyclopedia of Birds" is a comprehensive and lavishly illustrated reference to the world's birds. Accessibly written by renowned biologists and conservationists, and illustrated in color throughout, the book provides authoritative and systematic accounts of every bird family, covering form and function, distribution, diet, social behavior, breeding biology, and conservation and status. More than 1,000 superb color photos reveal the enormous diversity of birds in their natural habitats, from arctic tundra to tropical rain forest, and a wealth of beautifully detailed color and line illustrations depict representative species from each family and highlight characteristic behaviors. The main articles are complemented by detailed coverage of special topics, such as how ibises and spoonbills feed by touch, how pigeons find their way home, and how crows store food. And throughout the book, numerous 'Factfile' panels with color distribution maps and scale drawings provide at-a-glance overviews of key data. "The Princeton Encyclopedia of Birds" is the definitive one-volume reference - an essential guide for amateur bird enthusiasts and professional ornithologists alike. This work: covers all the bird families of the world; describes form and function, distribution, diet, social behavior, breeding biology, and conservation and status; features more than 1,000 spectacular color photos and illustrations; includes 'Factfile' panels with color distribution maps and scale drawings for at-a-glance reference; explores special topics in depth; and, is written by leading biologists and conservationists.
