Promotional Information

This volume stands out from the plethora of books on birds by concentrating on structural makeup and how structural modifications make one group of birds different from others. ...It is an altogether welcome offering by an eminently qualified writer. ...Summing up: Highly recommended. -- H.N. Cunningham, Jr. CHOICE, Vol. 45, No. 01 This book comprehensively covers the internal structure of birds with respect to many aspects of their life history and evolution from reptiles, with an emphasis on the skeleton. [...] Kaiser has emphasized, in the title The Inner Bird, a significant area of avian biology that has been little considered over the past decades, and one that must be given more attention if we are to fully appreciate all aspects in the life of birds. [...] I can recommend his book to ornithologists as an entrance into this fascinating area of avian biology. -- Walter J. Bock, Columbia University The Auk, No.126 (1)
