| Book Description: |
Shorebirds play a vital role in the trophic dynamics of our coastal ecosystems (Moreira 1997, Leguerrier et al. 2003) and are indicators of the conditions of those systems (Morrison 1986). Because many shorebird species are highly specialized predators, the diversity of species present and their duration of stay in a location is often a good indication of the condition of that location.
