The Biology of the Avian Respiratory System: Evolution, Development, Structure and Function



The Biology of the Avian Respiratory System: Evolution, Development, Structure and Function

Edited by John N. Maina
Publisher: Sрringеr, 1st ed., 2017
ISBN-10: 3319441523
ISBN-13: 978-3319441528
250 pages

The central focus of this book is the avian respiratory system. The authors explain why the respiratory system of modern birds is built the way it is and works the way that it does. Birds have been and continue to attract particular interest to biologists. The more birds are studied, the more it is appreciated that the existence of human-kind on earth very much depends directly and indirectly on the existence of birds. Regarding the avian respiratory system, published works are scattered in biological journals of fields like physiology, behavior, anatomy/morphology and ecology while others appear in as far afield as paleontology and geology. The contributors to this book are world-renowned experts in their various fields of study. Special attention is given to the evolution, the structure, the function and the development of the lung-air sac system. Readers will not only discover the origin of birds but will also learn how the respiratory system of theropod dinosaurs worked and may have transformed into the avian one. In addition, the work explores such aspects as swallowing mechanism in birds, the adaptations that have evolved for flight at extreme altitude and gas exchange in eggs. It is a highly informative and carefully presented work that provides cutting edge scientific insights for readers with an interest in the respiratory biology and the evolution of birds.

Nests, Eggs, and Incubation: New ideas about avian reproduction / Avian Embryology, Volume 87, Second Edition (Methods in Cell Biology), 2nd Edition



Nests, Eggs, and Incubation: New ideas about avian reproduction

Edited by D. Charles Deeming, S. James Reynolds
Publisher: Oхford Univеrsity Рrеss; 1st ed., 2015
ISBN-10: 0198718667
ISBN-13: 978-0198718666
296 pages

Nests, Eggs, and Incubation brings together a global team of leading authorities to provide a comprehensive overview of the fascinating and diverse field of avian reproduction. Starting with a new assessment of the evolution of avian reproductive biology in light of recent research, the book goes on to cover four broad areas: the nest, the egg, incubation, and the study of avian reproduction. New research on nest structures, egg traits, and life history is incorporated, whilst contemporary methodologies such as self-contained temperature probes and citizen science are also discussed. Applied chapters describe how biological knowledge can be applied to challenges such as urbanisation and climate change. The book concludes by suggesting priorities for future research.

This book builds upon the foundations laid down by Charles Deeming's 2002 work Avian Incubation (available for readers of this book to access online for free), much of which remains relevant today. Read in conjunction with this previous volume, it provides an up-to-date and thorough review of egg biology, nest function, and incubation behaviour, which will be an essential resource for students of avian biology, as well as both professional and amateur ornithologists working in the field of avian reproduction.

Comparative Hearing: Birds and Reptiles / Bird Sense: What It's Like to Be a Bird



Comparative Hearing: Birds and Reptiles

Edited by Robert J. Dooling, Richard R. Fay, Arthur N. Popper
Series: Sрringеr Handbook of Auditory Research (Book 13)
Publisher: Sрringеr; 1st ed., 2000
ISBN-10: 1461270367
ISBN-13: 978-1461270362
380 pages

Birds and reptiles have long fascinated investigators studying hearing and the auditory system. The highly evolved auditory inner ear of birds and reptiles shares many characteristics with the ear of mammals. Thus, the two groups are essential in understanding the form and function of the vertebrate and mammalian auditory systems. Comparative Hearing: Birds and Reptiles covers the broad range of our knowledge of hearing and acoustic communication in both groups of vertebrates. This volume addresses the many similarities in their auditory systems, as well as the known significant differences about hearing in the two groups.

Publisher: Bloomsbury USA; Reprint edition, 2013
ISBN-10: 1620401894
ISBN-13: 978-1620401897
288 pages

What is going on inside the head of a nightingale as it sings, and how does its brain improvise? How do desert birds detect rain hundreds of kilometers away? How do birds navigate by using an innate magnetic compass? Tracing the history of how our knowledge about birds has grown, particularly through advances in technology over the past fifty years, Bird Sense tells captivating stories about how birds interact with one another and their environment.

Never before has there been a popular book about how intricately bird behavior is shaped by birds' senses. A lifetime spent studying birds has provided Tim Birkhead with a wealth of fieldwork experiences, insights, and a unique understanding of birds, all firmly grounded in science. No one who reads Bird Sense can fail to be dazzled by it.

The Sensory Ecology of Birds



The Sensory Ecology of Birds

by Graham R. Martin
Series: Oxford Avian Biology
Publisher: Oxford University Press; 1st ed., 2017
ISBN-10: 0199694532
ISBN-13: 978-0199694532
295 pages

Birds are renowned for their exceptional vision and the way that this enables them to survive and navigate the world in such a unique way. However, it is now recognised that avian behaviour is guided by information drawn from many different senses which are then used in integrated and complementary ways to answer the many different sensory challenges posed by specific environments and particular tasks.

Understanding how sensory information is used by birds has important applications in conservation, such as providing vital insights into why birds are prone to collisions with structures like power lines and wind turbines, and why so many diving birds become entrapped in nets. A sensory ecology approach suggests how these problems can be mitigated.

The Sensory Ecology of Birds ranges widely across species, environments, and behaviours to present a synthesis that challenges previous assumptions about the information that controls the behaviour of birds. A bird may use a wide range and combination of sensory information that comes from sight, hearing, smell, mechanoreception, taste, and magnetoreception. It may also include specific refinements of senses, such as echolocation and remote touch from the bill. The book recognises that there are many complex and subtle trade-offs and complementarities of information between different types of sensory information.

This accessible text will be of interest to a wide ornithological readership, from undergraduates to researchers as well as a broader audience of behavioural ecologists and evolutionary biologists.

Anatomical Atlas of Domestic Birds



Anatomical Atlas of Domestic Birds

by Vasile Ghetie, St. Chitescu, V. Cotofan, A. Hillebrand
Publisher: Editura Academiei Republicii Socialiste Romania, 1st ed., 1976
Language: Romanian, French, English and Russian
ISBN-10: ---
ISBN-13: ---
292 pages

If certain species, especially mammals, enjoyed the attention of numerous authors who dealt with their morphology in synthesis works, domestic birds were little and rarely dwelt upon.
The present development of poultry rearing, aimed at providing man’s food with a high protein content, requires the extension and modernization of zootechny and avian pathology research. As these specialities are based on the thorough knowledge of morphology, the elaboration of such works appeared as a first-order necessity. The Anatomical atlas of domestic birds is a modest response to this demand.
Synthesizing our twenty-year-long endeavour, the atlas comprises 364 original plates, all of them executed at the dissection table; there were used about 400 domestic fowls (hens, turkey-hens, ducks, and geese) belonging to various races. Besides classical dissections on fresh or formolized specimens, the authors sometimes resorted to corrosion preparations (obtained by injecting the vessels with latex, nitrocellulose, etc.), to specimens rendered transparent by classical methods, or – when describing the topography of thoracoabdominal viscera- to freezed preparations. This mode of presenting the avian morphology was chosen as it allows an easy consultation both for research workers and members of the teaching staff. The precise indication of every anatomical element gives the possibility to find the required morphological detail, thus making unnecessary the perusal of a considerable number of pages.
The explanation of plates follows the international Latin terminology. As an official nomenclature for birds is so far missing, the authors have utilized, where it was possible, Nomina Anatomica Veterinaria (1973). In altogether special situations, they resorted to wide-circulation denominations found in the consulted literature, respecting the principles established by N.A.V.

Parrots and Finches: Healthy Nutrition Paperback – Import, 1 Nov 2012
by Rosemary Low (Author)


Parrots and Finches: Healthy Nutrition



Parrots and Finches: Healthy Nutrition

by Rosemary Low
Publisher: Insignis Publications, 1st ed., 2012
ISBN-10: 095313377X
ISBN-13: 978-0953133772
153 pages

This book is the latest by Rosemary Low who is internationally recognised for her work with birds and her many publications. She was formerly Curator of Loro Parque, Tenerife (the world’s largest parrot collection), and Palmitos Park, Gran Canaria.

The literature advertising this publication explains its genesis. Concerned at the early deaths of many birds in aviculture apparently attributable to inadequate nutrition, Rosemary decided to compile this book. In its pages she explains the nutrients contained in various types of foods and how to collect and grow foods that provide nutrients not present in seeds and pellets. She recommends that at least 30% of a bird’s dietary intake should be provided from fresh food and points out that, for example, seeds and grains that are sprouted provide an excellent protein-rich diet. The emphasis throughout the book is firmly on the prevention of nutritional deficiencies and adding enjoyment to birds’ lives by providing a varied and interesting diet.

There are three chapters about diets in the wild covering Australia, South America, and Africa. The page of “References Cited” is helpful but could, perhaps, have been more extensive. It was surprising to see no mention of the work of Michael Stanford, such as his thesis (for Fellowship of the RCVS) on the calcium needs of African grey parrots. The General Index and Species Index comprise 11 pages and are most helpful. They include reference to the excellent photographs in the book of birds and foodstuffs.

This is a small, attractively produced, book with excellent colour photographs. The information it contains reflects Rosemary Low’s half century of keeping and breeding birds and her concern for their health and welfare. It is eminently practical and very readable.

In his Foreword Alan K Jones MRCVS writes: “In over 40 years as a practising veterinary surgeon, with 30 of those years working with avian patients, it is clear from my experience that a poor, unbalanced, or inadequate diet is the number one cause of disease in captive birds”. Many of his veterinary colleagues concur with this view and both they and aviculturists would agree that this valuable book is long overdue.

Parrot Nutrition



Parrot Nutrition

by Robert G. Black
Publisher: Аvian Рublications, 1st ed., 2007
ISBN-10: 0910335079
ISBN-13: 978-0910335072
270 pages

Nutrition is the key to aviculture. It is the most important factor for success in maintaining and breeding captive birds. Anything less than 100% breeding success and picture-perfect feathering indicates the probability of an inadequate amount of the vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients that are essential for the health and breeding of a parrot. The result of years of research and practical experience, this detailed, in-depth guide covers everything you need to know about vitamins, minerals, proteins, fats, carbohydrates, and other nutritional elements and how they contribute to the health and well-being of parrots.

A Guide to Macaws as Pet and Aviary Birds, 2nd Revised edition



A Guide to Macaws as Pet and Aviary Birds
Revised Edition


by Rick Jordan, Mark Moore
Publisher: ABK Publications; 2nd Revised edition, 2015
ISBN-10: 0958710201
ISBN-13: 978-0958710206
214 pages

This 214-page title has been eagerly awaited by macaw breeders and pet bird owners since the first edition went out of print five years ago. The revision is written by the original author, Rick Jordan, together with Mark Moore-both highly respected specialist parrot breeders based at Hill Country Aviaries in Texas, USA. This facility boasts some 70 species of psittacines and has been awarded several US First Breeding awards by the American Federation of Aviculture. Rick and Mark are both very active in conservation and provide breeders with support through their knowledge and lectures internationally. Chapters examine macaws in the wild, taxonomy, habitat and distribution, conservation initiatives and wild status. Chapters on captive macaws detail behavioural issues, handling macaws, restraint, transportation, quarantine and hygiene, health and species characteristics, selecting macaws for breeding and choosing a young macaw to be your companion. The General Management section covers housing options, furnishings, nest boxes, security, rodent control and bird rooms. Feeding and Nutrition features details on pelleted diets, sprouted seeds, the nutritional value of fresh fruit and vegetables, and pre-breeding and breeding season diets. Breeding chapters are extensive-over 38 pages-and include sex determination, compatibility, selective breeding, courtship, nesting, eggs and clutch sizes, breeding problems, incubation, parent-rearing, artificial incubation, humidity, incubation periods, hatching, hand rearing, incubation problems and troubleshooting, chick development, preventing future behavioural problems, mutations and hybrids. Contributing authors, Constance Woodman and Dr Bob Doneley, support the authors with their specialist expertise. Constance's chapter, Macaws as Pet and Companion Birds, presents everything you need to know about caring for your pet macaw, including health checks for your new macaw, preparing for your new pet, restraint, harnesses, bathing, nail-clipping, enrichment through flight, housing, diet, behaviour, taming and training and behavioural problems. Dr Bob Doneley's Health and Diseases in Macaws chapter documents infectious and non-infectious diseases that may occur according to age group-neonatal, juvenile, adult and geriatric. All 19 species of macaw are presented in individual chapters which cover length, weight, approximate breeding age, clutch size, incubation period and fledging age. Sections detail wild habitat, description and finer captive information such as breeder suitability, pet aspects, mimicking capabilities, and the overall personality traits of each species. A Guide to Macaws as Pet and Aviary Birds-Revised Edition is the major captive care title for this species available worldwide, providing the details required by breeders and pet and companion owners alike.

Author Martin Vince offers an exhaustive volume about the biology and ecology of softbills -- small, flying birds that do not live on seeds, but on soft foods such as fruits, insects and meats. A practical and uniquely detailed book, it is based on the author's experience during twenty years of keeping and breeding a large range of softbills. The first section of text covers the basics from purchasing and housing to the particulars such as handling, banding and nutrition. The second section focuses on the different species, covering topics such as size, sexing, incubation and breeding. Because all of the birds described have been kept by the author, the information is especially relevant and helpful. This thoroughly modern, easy-to-use guide is sure to become the definitive source for softbill keepers.
