An ornithologist who has devoted decades to studying seabirds, Anthony Gaston explains in detail what is special about being a seabird and why - like humans - they live a long time and reproduce very slowly. Enriched with personal anecdotes from the field and photographs, the book provides information on all seabird types and covers adaptation and plumage, distribution and communities, feeding, behaviour, migration, breeding, the consequences of coloniality and population dynamics.
