Habitats for birds in Europe

By Rory Mccann, 10 Jan 2011
Graham M Tucker and Michael I Evans, 464 pages Out of Print The greatest threats to Europe's birds and biodiversity come from loss and degradation of habitat. This book brings together more than 190 bird and habitat conservation experts from all over Europe, to examine the threats to Europe's eight major habitat types, and propose policies and actions to protect and restore them. Although the emphasis is on birds, particularly the 40 percent of European species with an unfavourable conservation status, many of the recommendations within this book would help conserve all elements of biodiversity in the wider European environment.
