[Book review] The wildfowl of Britain and Europe

January 1, 1984

Of about 140 extant species of waterfowl in the world, 54 occur in the western Pale- arctic. In this, his most recent book, Ogilvie introduces the reader to the waterfowl of Europe including occasional visitors and introduced species. Although written primarily for laymen, ornithologists will find the book informative but should not expect a major treatise on European waterfowl. The text is drawn primarily from Volume I of "The hand-book of the birds of Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East: the birds of the Western Palearctic," of which the author was an editor.
