This is the much antici-pated and thoroughly updated version of the popular but long out of print qRaptor Management Techniques Manualq. Produced by the Raptor Research Foundation, this is a compre-hensive work designed for use by raptor researchers and conserva-tionists and natural-resource managers around the world. Each chapter has been authored by experts in the field and has undergone rigorous review. Not an all-inclusive manual or detailed qhow-toq book, this new work reflects the state of the art in raptor research, with up-to-date information on various techniques, and numerous references to additional sources for details and cautions regarding various field and laboratory techniques and management tools. Beginning with a general review of the field of raptor research, it includes insights into field-study techniques, information on the energetics, physiology, pathology, and toxicology of raptors; it cov-ers reduction of management and researcher disturbance, mitiga-tion, population monitoring at migration watchsites, captive breed-ing, the augmentation of wild populations, and rehabilitation, and concludes with chapters on public education and legal considerations. This book will enhance standardisation in the field, speed improvement in techniques and help those who study and manage birds to better protect them.Hawks and owls of the world: a distributional and taxonomic list, with the genus Otus by J.T.
