Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungThis exhaustive, richly annotated resource fills an important gap in Oregon bird literature. George Jobanek has carefully searched dozens of early ornithological, scientific, and natural history journals and publications, from American Field to Zoe, for records of Oregon birds. Because of the rarity of many references and their inaccessibility to most readers, the author has provided annotations for each of the nearly two thousand entries. Jobanek conveys in a concise manner the salient points of each article and frequently quotes from the references, especially descriptions of abundance and range. In addition, many of the annotations include citing of recent references.By briefly describing each item, Jobanek reveals its usefulness for contemporary readers. References are organized by author and cross-indexed by species, county, key word, and year of publication. Key words such as "behavior", "conservation", "distribution", "migration", "nesting", "plumage", and "taxonomy" have been assigned to each entry to reflect the primary topic or theme of the Oregon material of the reference. A gazetteer identifies localities mentioned in the annotations.This bibliography is a valuable new resource for professional and informed amateur ornithologists, wildlife managers, ecologists, natural historians, librarians, and anyone interested in birds in the Pacific Northwest. Its references will offer researchers a base for future studies and allow readers a glimpse of an earlier, golden era in ornithology.
