Synopsis

This book is a collection of papers highlighting ways in which Raptors have successfully adapted to man-made landscapes and structures. The coverage of Raptors in Human Landscapes is broad, ranging from the impact of human activity on country-wide scales to the particular conditions associated with urban, cultivated, and industrial landscapes, as well as to the various schemes specifically directed towards the provision of artificial nest sites and platforms. The cases described hail from a wide geographic range including North and South America, Europe, Africa and elsewhere, and from a broad spectrum of species groups such as the falcons, accipiters, eagles, kites, and many others.
This is a book of immense value not only to ornithologists and conservation biologists, but also to engineers and managers involved in all kinds of building and environmental work in cities, power and water works, agriculture, and forestry.
