Inhaltsangabe: The ruff is a species of bird whose elaborate breeding behaviour has fascinated ornithologists for decades. Their communal display ground, or leks, provide an extreme example of a social system widespread in birds and other animals, in which brilliantly plumaged males seemingly compete for the attention of passing females. In this book, Johan van Rhijn explores this complex and intricate behavioural pattern, both to lay bare the details of the players private lives, and to provide a means of exploring the wider variety of wader breeding systems. Strands of evidence for all aspects of the ruff's life, in and out of the breeding season, come together to give an insight into this important area of biology. Specialists and birdwatchers alike will find this text of interest.
