From School Library Journal:
YA-- Chapters in this excellent and comprehensive volume will answer hundreds of reference questions on all aspects of anatomy, flight, daily activities, distribution, migration and navigation, breeding, and conservation. Ornithologists, chiefly from the British Isles, have contributed signed articles that incorporate recent research in this readable and beautiful book. Clearly detailed scientific drawings, charts, or full-color photographs on every spread provide additional information. This is not a field guide for identification. However, it includes a survey of the orders of birds around the world that gives details about the families into which modern birds are divided. Indexes to scientific and common names, a subject index, and a glossary make this title useful for students. A reading list for further study is included. This resource will support biology courses, science projects, and the individual interests of YAs.
