Synopsis : The latest volume in the popular New Naturalist series is a detailed account of the evolution and classification of the wildfowl of Britain and Ireland. David Cabot, an expert in his field, looks at population trends and life cycles in three case studies of best known species—the swan, goose, and duck, along with wildfowl behavior, courtship, and breeding. This comprehensive exploration of what sets British wildfowl apart from other birds also considers the relationships between wildfowl and man, through popular mythology and legends.
About the Author: David Cabot has been involved with nature in Ireland for the last 40 years, initially in universities and then in numerous government positions, culminating in being the special adviser to the Irish Prime Minister.

Description du livre Collins, 2009. Paperback. État : New. A comprehensive overview of 56 species of swans, geese and ducks in Britain and Ireland, focused on social behavior, feeding ecology and population dynamics, and seasonal migration patterns. New Naturalist Wildfowl provides a much-anticipated overview of the fascinating birds that have become icons of our diminishing wilderness areas. Wildfowl - swans, geese and ducks - have been the subject of poetry, fables, folklore and music, and a source of inspiration to writers, artists, historians and naturalists alike. Historically, they have featured prominently in our diet - more recently they have become the most widely domesticated group of birds. Wildfowl have been scientifically studied more intensively than any other group of birds and were one of the first groups to highlight more general issues of conservation. Their status as the most popular group of birds is underlined by the success of the original Wildfowl Trust (now the Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust). David Cabot has been obsessed with wildfowl for nearly sixty years. In this seminal new work, he discusses the 56 species of wildfowl that have been recorded either in a natural state, or that have been introduced and now maintain self-sustaining populations in Britain and Ireland. He focuses on their social behaviour, feeding ecology and population dynamics, and in particular their seasonal migration patterns. He also explores the evolution and history of wildfowl and our long relationship with them, through popular mythology and legends, which continue to fascinate us with a sense of mystery and awe.
