Über diesen Titel


Book by Fjelds Jon

Críticas: is great that an easily accessible, attractive, near-comprehensive and truly eye-opening book summarizing the biology of grebes has seen the light of day. Fjeldsa's The Grebes can be read as an ornithological or evolutionary wake-up call. (Theunis Piersma, British Ornithologists' Union)

"I defy anyone to open the book without becoming caught up in these fascinating and thought-provoking images. For me, they are a highlight." (Angus Wilson, Birdwatch)
