Here are some excerpts from reviews, and links to full reviews.
“… The depth of the background research that went into Winged Sentinels combined with the approachability of the writing means that this book has the potential to ﬁnd a wide audience, including those new to the subject. Researchers, policy-makers, conservation practitioners, managers, and students can all equally gain from reading it.”
“… the impressive combination of thoroughly researched scientiﬁc summaries and colorful, entertaining writing. These two factors, so rarely seen together in academically inspired literature, should bestow Winged Sentinels an important spot on the bookshelves of ornithologists or those who simply care about birds.
“… the book provides a very decent general introduction to the ﬁeld and an excellent platform from which to delve into the burgeoning post-2011 literature. Furthermore, the book would make a good reference text for introductory courses on the inﬂuences of climate change on species and ecosystems. I therefore recommend this book to anyone wishing to get quickly up to speed on the current state of affairs regarding climate change and birds.”
“The fascinating descriptions of avian ecology and the endurance of birds serve to balance the broad range of scientific concepts and well-referenced data that are presented.”
“Wormworth and Sekercioglu have done an impressive job of collating the wealth of information that exists to provide a breathtaking overview of the topic from around the world, for which they should be congratulated. Importantly, they present this in a very readable form that is accessible to the non-specialist.”
“With its absorbing style and generous complement of colour photography Winged Sentinels is accessible to a general readership while being scientifically thorough, and tells a story that is of great interest to all scientists and policy-makers involved not only in avian conservation, but across the spectrum of climate-related ecological research.”
“… a cracking read.”
