    The Atlas of Birds captures the breathtaking diversity of birds, and illuminates their conservation status around the world. Full-color maps show where birds are found, both by country and terrain, and reveal how an astounding variety of behavioral adaptations — from flight and feeding to nest building and song — have enabled them to thrive in virtually every habitat on Earth. Sustaining biodiversity in ancient tropical countryside Book. Jan ; Joern Fischer Results of the effects of landscape on bird diversity indicated that bird diversity was positively.

    Co-published by Lynx Edicions and the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. Here in one volume is a synopsis of the diversity of all birds. Published in , between the two volumes of the HBW and BirdLife International Illustrated Checklist of the Birds of the World, this volume distills the voluminous detail of the volume Handbook of Birds of the World into a single book. We will: (1) characterize the boreal bird community, (2) identify possible underlying ecological factors associated with boreal bird populations, variability, and their trends, (3) describe what is known about the interactions between boreal birds and disturbance, and (4) review some tools that would be useful for sustaining boreal bird.

“Biodiversity, the variety of life on Earth, is essential to sustaining the living networks and systems that provide us all with health, wealth, food, fuel and the vital services our lives depend on,” the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity said in a statement.

The Earth's biodiversity-the rich variety of life on our planet-is disappearing at an alarming rate. And while many books have focused on the expected ecological consequences, or on the aesthetic, ethical, sociological, or economic dimensions of this loss, Sustaining Life is the first book to examine the full range of potential threats that diminishing biodiversity poses to human health/5(40).

Diversity of Birds. Bird diversity is much greater than that of reptiles, amphibians and mammals respectively. Presently, there extant species and extinct species of birds of the world.

The diversity is astounding, with birds existing almost everywhere in the world. The relationship between various environments and bird diversity has been a critical issue. A large number of studies have explored the variety of bird diversity in Author: Hung-Ming Tu, Meng-Wen Fan, Jerome Chie-Jen Ko.

This study shows the importance of landscape diversity via the question of whether a diversity of pests is more effective at control than one single pest; the results showed this to be the case. Loss of diversity in pest enemies will inevitably make it more difficult and costly to grow food.
