The most authoritative book on bird conservation in the Americas ever published, The American Bird Conservancy Guide to Bird Conservation will be the definitive book on the subject. The Guide presents the first comprehensive classification system and threat analysis for bird habitats in the United States, the most thorough assessment of threats to birds published to date, as well as a priority list of birds of conservation concern. Filled with beautiful colour illustrations and range maps, the Guide is a timely, important, and inspiring reference for birders and anyone else interested in conserving North America’s avian fauna. But this book is far more than another shout of crisis. The Guide also lays out a concrete and achievable plan of long-term action to safeguard our country’s rich bird life.
