Parrots: A Guide to Parrots of the World

by Tony Juniper and Michael Parr

Publisher: Yale University Press; First Edition (1998)

ISBN: 978-0-7136-6933-6

584 pages

Winner of the 1998 McColvin Medal for Outstanding Work of Reference given by the British Library Association

This is the first book created primarily for the field identification of parrots, one of the most familiar and colorful groups of birds. From the mighty macaws to the diminutive pygmy parrots, the 350 species of parrots include cockatoos, parakeets, lovebirds, and Budgerigar. Most are brightly colored or even gaudy, but a few are drab, and some are nocturnal and flightless. Parrots, found throughout most of the warmer regions of the world, occur in greatest numbers in Australasia and South America.

This book includes 88 superb color illustrations of every species and most identifiable subspecies of parrot, as well as range maps of their locations. It offers many first-hand insights into the ecology of each species, vocalizations, life cycle characteristics, and geographical variation. It also provides up-to-date information on the conservation status of those species of parrots that are threatened or endangered.

Physiology of Cold Adaptation in Birds

Edited by Claus Bech and Randi Eidsmo Reinertsen

Publisher: Springer Science+Business Media, 1st ed., 1989

ISBN-10: 1475700334

ISBN-13: 978-1475700336

384 pages

The papers in this volume were presented at the NATO Advanced Workshop: Physiology of Cold Adaptation in Birds, held 10.-15. June, 1988, at Hotel Alexandra, Loen, Norway. The workshop was generously supported by the NATO Scientific Affairs Division, Brussel, Belgia (grant ARW 585/87). We are also grateful to the College of Science, University of Trondheim, Norway, for supporting the participation of students.

Most recent symposia and meetings dealing with thermoregulation in vertebrates have emphasized on mammalian studies, and this book seems to be the first one ever published which solely deals with thermoregulation in birds. Birds and mammals maintain their internal body temperature constant and independent of fluctuating ambient temperatures. The present knowledge of mammalian and avian thermoregulation is extensive, but major questions are still unanswered. Furthermore, birds differ from mammals in many fundamental physiological aspects. Thus, even though both mammals and birds regulate their body temperature within strictly defined limits, the mechanisms utilized by birds are often different from those used by mammals. Only by knowing the mechanisms underlying thermoregulation in both groups that regulate their body temperature, can we fully understand the basic mechanisms of thermoregulation in homeotherms.

The main themes for the workshop were central nervous control mechanisms regulating body temperature, the nature of effector mechanisms, including shivering and non-shivering thermogenesis, and also factors initiating changes in the effector mechanisms. We greatly appreciate, through the NATO Scientific Affair's Division, to have been able to organize such a workshop, and it is our hope that the publication of this book will stimulate further research in the field of avian thermoregulation.

Your Pet Parrot

by Maureen Pace

Publisher: ---, 1st ed., 2007

ISBN: ---

50 pages

Maureen Pace and her husband have owned a variety of birds, but now just have two peach-faces which, she says, provide great company.

Maureen says, “I love my parrots and I’m very grateful to my husband for giving me the first one two years ago.”

“I’ve seen and heard a lot of great advice and some friends that have shared their experiences which has been really helpful, but the best lessons have come from my parrots!”

“For them and all the other parrots that give so many people companionship and help to make their lives lots more interesting, I have tried to make clear the those parts of keeping a parrot that some people might regard as negatives so that my readers have their eyes open when they decide to get their first parrot.

There’s also plenty of information that I believe will help people that already have a parrot and may have found it difficult to get answers to some of their questions..

Animal Influenza Virus (2nd) / Avian Influenza: Etiology, Pathogenesis and Interventions


Animal Influenza Virus

Second Edition

Edited by Erica Spackman

Series: Methods in Molecular Biology

Publisher: Humana Press, 2nd ed., 2014

ISBN-10: 1493907573

ISBN-13: 978-1493907571

425 pages

Influenza A viruses are among the most important pathogens for humans, food animals, and companion animals. Of the animal influenza viruses, avian, swine, and equine influenza are likely to have the greatest economic impact internationally because of their value as food animals or, with horses due to a large sport competition industry. Also, although the risk is truly unknown, as domestic animals, poultry, swine, and horses have extended contact with humans, which provides an interface for interspecies transmission, there is always the potential for these animal influenza viruses to become threats to public health.

Regardless of the possible implications for public health, influenza is highly significant to poultry, swine, and equine health. Research and diagnostics with animal influenza viruses are critical to animal health in its own right and it should be recognized that the needs and goals of animal agriculture and veterinary medicine are not always the same as those of public health. Even within these three examples of animal influenza viruses there are differences in the approach which may need to be taken, as the structure of the poultry, swine, and equine industries are different and there are some biological differences of influenza virus from each animal group as well. One of the aims of this book is to sort out those differences and to provide host, strain, and lineage specifi c guidance and procedures.

Avian Influenza: Etiology, Pathogenesis and Interventions

Edited by Salomon Haugan, Walter Bjornson

Series: Public Health in the 21st Century

Publisher: Nova Science Pub Inc, 1st ed., 2010

ISBN: 978-1-61761-566-5

216 pages

Avian influenza, sometimes avian flu, and commonly called bird flu, refers to "influenza caused by viruses adapted to birds." Of greatest concern is highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI). These influenza viruses occur naturally among birds. Wild birds worldwide carry the viruses in their intestines, but usually do not get sick from them. However, avian influenza is very contagious among birds and can make some domesticated birds, including chickens, ducks, and turkeys, very ill. Infected birds shed influenza virus in their saliva, nasal secretions, and feces. Susceptible birds become infected when they have contact with contaminated secretions or excretions or with surfaces that are contaminated with secretions or excretions from infected birds. The risk from avian influenza is generally low for most people, because the viruses do not usually infect humans. However, confirmed cases of human infection from several subtypes of avian influenza infection have been reported since 1997. The spread of avian influenza viruses from one ill person to another has been reported very rarely, and has been limited, inefficient and unsustained. This important book gathers the latest research from around the globe in this field.

About the Author: Birds have been an important part of Julie Rach Mancini?s life ever since her father built a window shelf to feed pigeons as mealtime entertainment for her when she was a toddler. Her parents got her first bird, a parakeet named Charlie, when she was six, and she kept a special African grey parrot named Sindbad for more than ten years. Professionally, her interest in birds began to combine with her love of writing when the editors of Pet Health News asked her to write about bird health in 1988. She assisted in the preparation of the first issue of Birds USA, a successful annual publication aimed at the first-time pet bird owner, and became managing editor, then editor, of Bird Talk in 1992. Julie has been a freelance writer since 1997, with pets as her primary focus.

by Terry Martin

Publisher: ABK Publications, 1st ed., 2002

ISBN-10: 0957702477

This title, that has taken Australian author, Dr Terry Martin BVSc, some five years to complete, aims to be the most definitive, collective work ever attempted on this intriguing and contentious subject. Drawing on information from specialist parrot mutation breeders from all over the world, Terry Martin has collated over 700 colour photographs within text that is both approachable and easily understood. Presented in three parts, the author takes the reader through an introduction to understanding the basic principals of mutations and colour genetics in the first two parts. The information has been supported throughout with a plethora of colour photography. Part three is for the adventurous, being the technical manifest of genetics in parrots. Over 80 species of parrot are discussed with numerous examples of breeding outcomes to assist the breeder in understanding how various mutations can be bred and developed. The underlying objective throughout this book is the author's attempt to standardise the naming of colour mutations internationally.
