This is the only English-language publication devoted exclusively to extensive reviews and synthesis of topics on the biology of birds. The current volume includes articles on sibling competition, predation and the limitation of bird numbers, and population trends in birds of eastern North America.
`The quality of these chapters, as usual, is quite high....As in past volumes, this book provides a tremendous service to both new students and more experienced researchers....They provide new viewpoints, corrections of misconceptions, and a means of checking what we think we already know.'
