More than 30 species of plover (genus Charadrius) have provided key insights shaping theory across a wide range of ecological sub-discipline. Many of these species are also threatened because they live where human population is greatest. The editors propose to organize a group of international specialists to write a series of multi-authored chapters.

Published in collaboration with and on behalf of the American Ornithological Society, this volume in the highly-regarded Studies in Avian Biology series will have a strong applied emphasis and be of great use to conservationists worldwide. The book will be organized into sections corresponding to the annual cycle of each taxon. As such, it will use the Full Life Cycle Biology approach championed by researchers spearheading conservation of migratory species worldwide.


Key selling features:

  • Detailed overview of a widely distributed (i.e., worldwide) group of birds
  • Strong linkage between basic biology and conservation
  • Evolutionary foundation and context
  • Authored by renowned specialists on the taxon with theoretical foundation
  • Emphasis on comparative approach in all chapters
