Neuware - The methods used to track birds' migratory patterns have changed significantly over the last decade. The authors describe in precise detail the standard equipment and routine procedures for the safe handling of two characteristic land birds - passerines and waders. The methodology presented in the book includes, among others, morphometric measurements, fat scoring and orientation tests. 230 pp. Englisch. N° de ref. de la librería
In an attempt to standardize elements of the station routine, the book describes the procedures used in passerine and wader ringing stations. It offers a comparative analysis of versatile evaluation techniques such as measurements, orientation experiments and monitoring. The authors meticulously analyze different methods used to track birds, including catching passerines with mist-nets in land and wetland habitat, as well as the use of the Heligoland trap. The monograph, as a successful bid to establish a bird station routine that is favourable to both birds and ringers, will benefit all professional and amateur ringers.
