Raptor Research and Management Techniques is the much anticipated and thoroughly updated version of the popular but long out of print Raptor Management Techniques Manual. Produced by the Raptor Research Foundation, this is a comprehensive work designed for use by raptor researchers and conservationists 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 “how-to” 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:
*Toxicology of Raptors
This book also covers:
*Reduction of Management and Researcher Disturbance
*Population Monitoring At Migration Watchsites
*Augmentation Of Wild Populations
Raptor Research and Management Techniques will enhance standardization in the field, speed improvement in techniques and help those who study and manage birds to better protect them.
