Boreal Birds of North America : A Hemispheric View of Their Conservation Links and Significance
""A wonderful book that highlights the globally unique and important boreal forest ecoregion from an avian perspective, with fresh twists. Your ideas about where those migrant and wintering birds in your backyards have come from will be forever changed after you read this.""--Gordon Orians, Professor Emeritus of Biology, University of Washington ""This diverse set of contributions about birds that nest in and migrate to and from North America's boreal forest demonstrates the remarkable interconnectedness of ecosystems across the hemispheres and the incredible responsibility we face to protect them.""--Bridget Stutchbury, York University, author ofSilence of the SongbirdsandThe Private Lives of Birds ""The fact that billions of birds breed in North America's boreal forest is amazing enough, but this assemblage is even more remarkable when understood as playing completely different, major ecological roles across the temperate and tropical Americas during the northern winter. This book definitely will broaden your thinking about ecological connections across the hemisphere and the global-scale phenomenon that crosses our skies twice each year.""--John
