About this product
- DescriptionThis book covers the discovery and history of the most rthern breeding population of Peregrine Falcons in the world, near Thule Air Base in rth-west Greenland (75.9-77.6 N). Although the region was explored by scientific expeditions as early as 1818, Peregrines were t documented in the area until the 1930s. By the early 1990s the population had become well established, with a warming climate enabling Peregrines from further south to expand their breeding range rthward. Here Burnham and his co-authors present their comprehensive findings on the biology and ecology of this population based on thirteen years of research from 1993 to 2005.
- Author BiographyKurt K. Burnham has worked throughout Greenland studying Peregrine Falcons and Gyrfalcons for the past 22 years.
