Bird Conservation 2
Edited by Stanley A. Temple

Bird Conservation Studies

Concerned conservationists and professional and amateur ornithologists alike welcomed the inauguration, in 1983, of Bird Conservation. Sponsored by the U.S. Section of the International Council for Bird Preservation, the ambitious project was designed to provide a yearly overview of current research and key ecological topics in the field of bird conservation. This, the second yearbook of the series, includes essays by leading ecologists and ornithologists and focuses on a range of issues critical to island birds—among them, the status of endangered birds of Micronesia, the distribution and abundance of Hawaiian native birds, the vulnerability of endemic island birds to extinction, and bird conservation efforts in the United States Caribbean. Also included are concise reports on recent bird conservation activities and research and an annotated bibliography of relevant literature.

“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

“This [series] will be 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

Stanley Temple, editor of Bird Conservation, was, when this book was published, the Beers-Bascom Professor of Conservation at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, and contributor of more than sixty articles to ornithological and ecological journals. He is the editor of Endangered Birds: Management Techniques for Preserving Threatened Species, also published by The University of Wisconsin Press.
