Verlagstext:

Recognised avicultural experts world-wide have contributed to make this a truly international avicultural handbook. A wide variety of valuable species are held outside of managed species programs and it is essential that we maximise the breeding potential of these species to ensure they contribute to long-term self-sustainable populations. In this book, the aviculturist is provided with proven, practical methods for the successful management and propagation of most of the families of birds in the world. Vital, practical components for avicultural success that are universally applicable to a wide range of species, such as diets, compatibility with other species, habitat requirements, incubation, and hand-raising techniques are included.Aviculturists today are faced with the challenge of establishing captive-bred strains that are no longer reliant on replenishments from wild stock and also in assisting to reduce the current rate of species extinctions. It is the authors' hope that this book will assist aviculturists in achieving this goal.

Aviculturists today are faced with the challenge of establishing captive-bred strains that are no longer reliant on replenishments from wild stock, while attempting to reduce the current rate of species extinctions. Glen's commendable desire that this book will assist aviculturists in achieving this goal is certainly achieved.

This title is more suited to the serious aviculturist who would appreciate the wealth of research and extensive information provided on a vast array of species.
