Pressestimmen

"Weller has published extensively on wetlands and waterbirds over the past 30-some years and is a recognized authority in the field...Numerous diagrams, tables, and black-and-white photographs clearly illustrated points in the text. Sections of additional reading and literature cited include both classic and current works. Appendixes list the scientific names of birds, other animals, and plants mentioned in the text. Recommended for all academic libraries. Undergraduates through professionals."-- Science & Technology "Enjoyable...It is a book that is desirable for college libraries and for advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate students...essential for professionals in the wetland wildlife arena. Dr. Weller has provided us with many useful insights and syntheses based on a long and rewarding career spent often "in hip boots" rather than in front of a computer. His love of wetlands and their inhabitants comes through in this book, and he continues a leadership role in a world of field ecologists where fewer and fewer are really experiencing the wet and wild."
