Bird Conservation 3
Edited by Jerome A. Jackson

Bird Conservation Studies

“A useful and valuable publication.”Wildlife Book Review

Bird Conservation 3 focuses on the forest habitats of North America and the birds that call them home: what they were like before the arrival of the Europeans, what has happened up to the present, and what may be in store for them in the future. The contributors trace changes in bird populations through time and relate these changes to specific changes in forest environments. The volume also includes recommendations for preserving some of the biotic diversity of North America, emphasizing the need to save mature forests. In addition to the major articles, this volume includes updates on International Council forBird Preservation (ICBP) activities and a bibliography of efforts in bird conservation..

 “This [series] … valuably fills a niche between the scientific and the popular press by disseminating reliable information…. the U.S. Section of the ICBP deserves applause.”—The Condor


“A valuable addition to the literature for professional and amateur alike, enabling us to keep up with developments in this very important field.”—The Redstart
