There are more than one-thousand species of threatened birds in the world, while many others are valued for sport and some are serious pests. All these bird populations require management of one kind or another. This volume reviews our current understanding of avian population dynamics and explores ways in which population studies can contribute to effective conservation and management. The earlier chapters review general questions such as estimation of demographic parameters, the role of mathematical modelling, and the special problems of island populations and seabird populations. The specific chapters are devoted to great tits, snow geese, white storks, puffins, flamingos, grey partridge, red grouse, common terns, herring gulls, lesser black-backed gulls, ducks, Florida scrub jays, and northern spotted owls. The emphasis throughout is on how bird populations are regulated under various constraints and conditions and on what changes we might expect under varying environmental regimes.

This well-produced and well-edited book provides an admirable overview of the state of play in bird population studies. The many excellent, and often rigorously experimental, studies of local breeding numbers are well represented. The book ... sets a high scientific standard that will interest professional and keen amateur ornithologists. J.D. Goss-Custard, IBIS, Vol. 134, 1992 "Bird Population Studies will become a major reference for avian population biologists. Its editors have assembled an outstanding collection of 30 chapters ... The chapters individually exhibit a uniformly high quality of presentation and together portray comprehensively the state of avian demography." Robert E. Ricklefs, University of Pennsylvania, TREE, vol. 7, no. 4, April 1992
