RRP $19.99

The book is aimed directly at field identification. For those species that are sexually dimorphic, have both breeding and non-breeding plumages, or in which the juvenile plumage differs markedly from that of the adult, more than one photograph has been included. Thumbnail silhouettes aid the reader in quickly locating the correct group of birds, and for each species account a map shows the bird's distribution.

About the Author

Peter Rowland was born in 1938 and has lived in NE London all his life. Was maried for more than 30 years but, sadly, became a widower in 1993. Graduated with honours from Bristol University in 1960. Worked in local goverment (primarily the Greater London Council) until 1998, but pursued a parallel career as a historian and biographer (and occasional novelist). His most well-known achievements, to date, have been a biography of David Lloyd George (1975) and engaging the services of Mr Sherlock Holmes to solve the mystery of Edwin Drood (1991). But he has tackled a considerable number of other subjects.

Produced first-ever biography of E.W. Hornung, creator of Raffles, and rediscovered 'Lanoe Falconer' (pseudonym of Victorian author Mary E. Hawker), writing her biography and tracking down many of her "lost" stories. Currently working on a biography of William George, Lloyd George's father, and then hopes to produce one of Thomas Hood. His interests include vintage films, rambling, photography and music.

Interspecific Competition In Birds

RRP $19.99

In nature there exist three main types of biotic interactions between individuals of different species: competition, predation, and mutualism. All three exert powerful selection pressures, and all three shape communities. However, the question of how important interspecific competition in nature really is remains controversial and unresolved. This book provides a critical and exhaustive review of the topic. Although the examples are limited mostly to birds (interspecific competition and community structure have been exhaustively studied in this animal group, and a lot of experimental data are available), the conclusions reached have a far broader relevance to population ecologists in general. The book reasons that the coexistence of species is the result of both past and presently on-going interspecific competition. Furthermore, understanding the importance of interspecific competition in natural systems will be increasingly important when modelling the effects of climate change on populations.
