  • Pelicans, Cormorants, and Their Relatives: The Pelecaniformes. Bird Families of the World. By J Bryan Nelson, The pelecaniformes are a large and important group of seabirds, containing many spectacular species This book addresses the breeding biology of the six pelecaniform families, which comprise the closely related core groups pelicans, cormorants shags, darters, gannets boobies and their distant relatives, the frigate birds and tropic birds Many fundamental questionsThe pelecaniformes are a large and important group of seabirds, containing many spectacular species This book addresses the breeding biology of the six pelecaniform families, which comprise the closely related core groups pelicans, cormorants shags, darters, gannets boobies and their distant relatives, the frigate birds and tropic birds Many fundamental questions can be addressed through the pelecaniformes Why do they breed in colonies What are the links between their feeding methods and their reproduction What part does territorial and pairing behaviour play in their life cycles These and scores of comparable issues, including those related to man, are woven here into a richly interpretative text The author s approach to the subject is threefold First, the pelecaniformes are placed within the framework of four discrete disciplines, with chapters on evolutionary relationships, comparative behaviour, ecology, and the birds relationship with humans Secondly, each of the six families is discussed, elucidating the range of taxonomy, behaviour, and ecology within each Finally, we progress to specific level, using the same structure as for the family accounts In this way, each of the 60 odd species can be understood not just as discrete units, but as part of their family and order The book is unique in its coverage of the entire order and in its combination of facts and interpretation Pelicans, Cormorants, and their Allies will enable readers not only to identify the many spectacular species which make up this large and important group of seabirds, but also to understand their breeding biology.
