Reviews

This new book represents a major revision of the first edition and addresses all aspects of waterfowl ecology and management under one cover. The second edition is expanded to 2,800 references arrayed across 11 chapters such as classification, courtship behavior and pair-bond formation, reproduction, feeding ecology, breeding and winter periods, mortality and harvest management, wetlands and wetland management, major waterfowl habitats, and policy and administration. The new edition also includes 16 "infoboxes," which are stand-alone inserts in the various chapters. The infoboxes present information on important waterfowl people, places, and issues. Coverage also has been expanded to address important waterfowl habitats around the globe and address a broad array of issues and examples of waterfowl ecology from the international literature.

"The extensive detail of this 500+ page hardcover guide is ideal for specialists. A top-quality reference, illustrated with black-and-white diagrams and photographs, and featuring a lengthy index for easy reference. Highly recommended for field professionals."--Wisconsin Bookwatch, June 2006

"The world's 171 species of ducks, geese and swans, and their admirers worldwide, now benefit from comprehensive presentation of biological and conservation information by two outstanding waterfowl biologists, a teacher and his student, who represent two generations of direct involvement in creating and collating information about these beautiful birds--the "ambassadors" of the world's wetlands, many of which are threatened." -- George W. Archibald, Co-founder and Senior Conservationist, International Crane Foundation

"The excellence of the first edition of this book is enhanced in the second by a change to a larger (8.5 x 11) format, making the graphics and tabular information more comfortably readable…the same number of chapters as in the older edition, but extensively revised and presenting new knowledge, especially in waterfowl classification, mating, reproductive biology, and brooding of the young. The book's conclusion addresses changing patterns of land use, hunting, and the looming threats inherent in global warming. All of this material is supported by hundreds of new references cited at the ends of chapters." -- H.N. Cunningham Jr., emeritus, Pennsylvania State Erie, Behrend College, CHOICE, December 2006

"Whether you are a waterfowl enthusiast, a wildlife biology student, a waterfowl rehabilitator, or a conservation biologist, this book is a must read. It provides practical information and is a great book for your reference library." -- Matthew Scott, Wildlife Rehabilitation Bulletin, Volume 24, No. 2, Fall/Winter 2006

"This second edition will be an excellent addition to the library of all scholars of our web-footed feathered friends." -- Glenn H. Olsen, Patuxent Wildlife Research Center, The Quarterly Review of Biology, March 2007

"… the authors have done an excellent job enhancing and improving the first edition with current knowledge of various aspects of waterfowl ecology and management." -- Craig A. Davis, The Journal of Wildlife Management, 71(1)

"The authors' extensive and varied experience in waterfowl research, bolstered by input from numerous waterfowl researchers and managers with diverse background, have helped to make this publication state-of-the-art. I would recommend this book for the library of every waterfowl biologist, educator, and student seeking a thorough understanding of the current issues affecting waterfowl populations and their management." -- Gary L. Krapu, Northern Prairie Wildlife Research Center, The Auk, April 2007

"The waterfowl world received a much-anticipated update in 2006…each chapter has been extensively updated..will serve as a text for graduate or undergraduate courses, and will be a good addition to the library of professional biologists as well." -- Richard D. Crawford, The Condor, May 2007

"The book has several 'Infoboxes' with information about individuals, species and even research facilities, all of which have played a part in enriching waterfowl science. The individuals covered include Sir Peter Scott, Jean Delacour, and Janet Kear. The 'Infoboxes' describe the tremendous contributions made by these aviculturists and these sections alone make the book a worthwhile acquisition." -- Derian A.L. Silva Moraton, Avicultural Magazine, Volume 113, No. 1, 2007
