New Handbook about the Parrots of Africa
Press release from: Institut für Papageienforschung e.V.
Africa is a large continent containing relatively few parrot species. Nevertheless, especially African Grey and Senegal parrots belong to the most popular pet animals of the world. At the same time, little is known about their natural behavior and ecology, and some species already give some serious reason for concern in terms of conservation. The outstanding book “Parrots of Africa” (ISBN-13: 978-3833484452) will provide enormous help to those engaged in the biology, conservation and aviculture of these unique birds. It is the most comprehensive handbook of its kind and covers the habitats of all African parrots (Psittacus, Coracopsis, Poicephalus, Agapornis, Psittacula species), their non-breeding and breeding biology, their feeding ecology as well as important conservation issues. Aviculturists will find the compact husbandry manual for African parrots of great value. All aspects of caring for African parrots are covered in this comprehensive section. The guide contains information about housing, feeding, and breeding these sensitive and intelligent birds. An in-depth section on conservation, in addition to a thorough discussion of the species' natural history and behavioral traits, is certain to prove useful to experienced owners as well as those just beginning to know and love these spectacular parrots. The book has been published in cooperation with the German Parrot Research Institute.
