This title focuses on the southern hemisphere, using African examples. ""Ornithology for Africa"" has been specially written for users on the southern side of the equator, and puts Africa in the lead in this regard. It is based on a series of lectures on the biology of birds, which the author has presented over the years to adult audiences throughout southern Africa. The text is aimed at the informed layperson, as well as at the senior undergraduate student. The style allows the lay reader not only to learn about birds, but also to enjoy ornithology as a pastime or even as a more serious occupation. The nine chapters cover the origin of birds, flight, feeding adaptations, zoogeography, ecology, migration, behaviour, and breeding biology.
