"[A]n impressive array of chapters written by world-renowned seabird ecologists and physiologists. [A] well-written and relatively comprehensive review ." - The Condor ..."the book is very comparative in the subjects that it covers. Readers will be able to compare feeding behaviors, breeding biology, chick development, and many other subjects... The editors are to be commended for making a multiple author text work together so well. The writing is very readable and straightforward." -Library News for Zoos and Aquariums, September 2001 "The publishers make the rather strong claim that this book provides the only complete summary of information ever published about these specialized birds. Surprisingly, this statement appears correct. Major advances have been made in the study of marine birds in the last two or three decades. This book represents a timely and tremendously useful introduction to recent results, within a general context of evolution, ecology, physiology and conservation. The essential character of this book is that it contains a wealth of information, nicely presented with good tables and graphs, and illustrated by numerous sketches by John Busby and others. Generally, the text is of very high quality. this book is undoubtedly a considerable achievement. It seems to be aimed essentially at research biologists, though it will of interest to plenty of other people. It is a book for dipping into at intervals, with relish, rather than for reading cover to cover. And there is a great deal to dip into." -David Max, in Ibis, Vol. 144, 2002
