Natural History and Conservation

University of Washington Press
Among the most delightful creatures in the world, penguins are also among the most vulnerable. This timely book presents the most current knowledge on each of the eighteen penguin species – from the majestic emperor penguins of the Antarctic to the tiny blue penguins of New Zealand and the Galápagos penguins of the equator – written by the leading experts in the field. Beautifully illustrated with full-color photographs of each species in their natural habitats, along with detailed charts and graphs, Penguins will enchant anyone interested in the lives or plight of these fascinating animals.
Pablo Garcia Borboroglu is a researcher at the National Research Council of Argentina and president of the Global Penguin Society. P. Dee Boersma is a professor of biology and Wadsworth Endowed Chair in Conservation Science at the University of Washington.
