The secrets behind more than 3,000 scientific names – not all of which derive from Latin – are revealed here in an exquisitely illustrated and produced volume, organized alphabetically. It also delves into aspects of biology and behaviour such as beaks, feathers, songs, calls, migration and foraging, and looks at the crucial discoveries of eleven notable ornithologists. American spelling.
